Big Blow To Nation & Standard As Journalist Plea To President Ruto Over This

A group of journalists from several stations pleaded with President William Ruto to support troubled media organizations.

The media professionals claimed that Ruto help was essential to tackling the issue of mass layoffs especially at Nation Media Group (NMG) and the Standard on Monday, December 5 during a journalists meeting hosted by Scribes Kenya.

The Kenya Kwanza administration was urged by the fourth estate to boost the portion of public cash used for media marketing.

Odit said that the President William Ruto-led Kwanza administration in Kenya must recognize the crucial role that journalists play in the governance of their nation.

The government provides financial support to other government-run organizations when they are in trouble. In light of Ruto's declaration that he is the president of the weak, we thus implore the government to take action to stop the job losses Added he.

The journalists led by Roncliffe Odit of BBC Africa urged Ruto to engage media organizations when launching mitigation actions.

Odit urged that the government must aid media organizations by distributing advertisements.

A journalist from Nation Media Group named Juma Namlola blamed recent media house restructuring initiatives and disruptions in the digital economy for the job losses.

To combat the competition from mobile journalism and the widespread use of the internet he instead challenged journalists to come up with new more inventive ways to tell their stories.
