What Ruto's PS Has Told Media Houses That Campaigned Against UDA In August 9th Polls

Fears in media houses that Ruto is on a vendetta led to the resignation of Edward Kisiangani as principal secretary of the state department of broadcasting and telecommunications. Edward claims the president is not looking to punish the media simply because they campaigned against him. He's glad that elections were held in a democratic fashion and that the press was able to pick their candidate.

Kisiangani has reassured the press that democratically-inclined Ruto is not out to get them. Since the press is the primary means by which the public is made aware of the government's stance on issues, he makes it plain that press freedom will be protected.

With the 4 IEBC Commissioners backed into a corner, President Ruto has made his opponents tremble in horror. The president's swift actions have stunned many departments that fiercely opposed his election.

Some media outlets, such as the Nation Media Group, have clearly begun cutting back despite Edward Kisiangani's message. This is because newspapers and TV stations no longer receive the government advertisements they did under Uhuru's presidency.
