Matiangi Warns Local Media Houses Few Days After Ruto's Camp Protested Against Citizen TV

Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Dr Fred Matiang'i has sent a stern warning to local media houses few days after Ruto's camp protested against Citizen TV citing biasness in their political news reporting.

According to reports, the CS warned on closure of all media houses that will go against the code of conduct governing professional journalism. He affirmed that the government won't hesitate to take action to any media house causing that is skewed towards certain politicians, incite Kenyans, or lacks integrity in their reporting claiming that such actions can lead to chaos and bloodshed.

The warning comes few days after Ruto's camp protested against Royal Media Services, particularly Citizen TV. The leaders claimed that the station is unfair in its political news bulleting in favor of ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

Led by Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa and Soy MP Caleb Kositany, the leaders lamented that Ruto's campaigns are not given full coverage while Raila's are prioritized.
