Media Poaching : Blow to K24 as political reporters join Citizen TV

Published

on

K24 has suffered yet another blow after political affairs reporters Jane Chemutai Goin and Apollo Kamau ditched the Mediamax Network-owned station for Citizen TV.

The move leaves the station with virtually no political journalists after Duncan Khaemba, Anders Ihachi and Chris Thairu were shown the door in November 2015 when the media house retrenched about 70 journalists. Khaemba and Thairu were later hired by KTN.

Senior news anchor Richard Kagoe, who also used to report on politics and current affairs, also quit to join BBC in August this year.

Apart from covering political events, the two also doubled as parliamentary reporters.

At Citizen TV, the two are set to bolster its political coverage and also fill the void left by Jacque Maribe, who was banned by High Court judge James Wakiaga from appearing on TV as part of the bail sanctions that saw her released from remand after she was charged alongside her fiancee Joseph Irungu for the murder of business lady Monica Kimani.

Goin started her career as a reporter at Capital FM before joining K24. On the other hand, Kamau previously worked with KBC and TBN/Family Media before joining K24 in September 2007 as a current affairs/political reporter.

K24 also recently lost rising business reporter Brenda Kerubo.

I found condoms under my husband’s mattress – Akothee

Published

on

Kenyan bubbly singer Akothee says she once found condoms stashed under the mattress of her first mzungu baby daddy.

In a Facebook post, Akothee said that the experience was so tough that she learnt that a man is not to be chased around.

According to the mother of five, other women were jealous of her dating a mzungu but never knew what she was going through.

“He was coming home at 2.00 am, even after I struggled to cook for him, the bugger would still leave at 11.00 pm saying he is going for a drink at Safari in, he will come back, my bugger ended up in Casorina, and came back home at 2.00 am, on other days, the man could disappear at 11pm saying that he was going to have a drink which raised her eye-brows,” the post read in part.

This saw her one day trail the car of her husband when he left the house at night only to end up at another woman’s house in Mtwapa.

When the man came back the following day, the singer said that he hid something under the mattress which she later found out to be condoms.

Akothee said that she became helpless as she was afraid of losing him. All she could do was cry.

I loved him Soo much that, I would cry and pick up next strength, chasing a man for love & Attention ended with Mr .R,” she said.

“You know MC Jessy, let us tell people the truth. There are times I have slept on the couch and it really helps the marriage. At times you need to take time out,” said the singer.

The father of two decided to give young men who will be soon getting into marriage some advice.

Nameless hilariously said that they should be very keen while buying their furniture and ensure that they buy comfortable sofas for they probably will spend the night there when things get heated in the bedroom.

“One thing I would like to tell men, they should be very keen while buying furniture for their house. Ensure that you buy sofas that you can use as a bad. When things get tough in the bedroom, you will need that seat not once or twice,” he added.

“I don’t know anything about Robert Murathe, I don’t know what he’s doing, he’s probably sick. I have never heard of this guy. You are saying he is supposed to have been paid, by who? When it comes to issues like rumours, if I were to respond to every rumour I would be very busy,” he said.
