A smooth connection between the media and the administration of President William Ruto has been guaranteed by Principal Secretary for Broadcasting and Telecommunications Prof. Edward Kisiang'ani.
On Tuesday, December 6 shortly after succeeding Esther Koimett he declared that he will work to promote reconciliation rather than retaliation throughout his tenure.
There will be no mistreatment of the media under my watch. Even getting even with the media would take up too much room. We want to have a good relationship with the media he said.
Kisiang'ani mentioned the campaign phase leading up to the general election in August, noting that it was a phase that was anticipated given that everything had become politicized.
Those who objected to Kenya Kwanza policies were correct democracy functions in this way. People disagree yet ultimately we settle down and come to an agreement. It was said by the president and we concur.
Don't view the government as a tool that will begin taking revenge that was politics. You shouldn't be concerned he said.
The PS invited the media to engage in whatever they wanted on behalf of the government, stressing that no one would face discrimination in the future unless it was related to the distribution of false information.
I want to make a specific request to the media. We want to make peace on behalf of the government. The same people are served by us.
