Swaleh Mdoe blasts ‘senior’ media gurus

Published

on

Renowned Swahili news anchor Swaleh Mdoe on Thursday hit out at his colleagues who adopt fancy names.

Through a tweet, Mdoe noted that Kenyans are obsessed with ‘big’ titles and went ahead list a couple.

He further suggested that there should be no seniority in newsrooms since most of them do the same thing.

“Kenyans are obsessed with BIG titles. Dr, Prof, Eng so-and-so.Senior Editor, Senior Anchor.

“What seniority is there when we are editing same copy or reading news? Just asking SENIOR media gurus. Labish,” he wrote.

The anchor did not mention any names but it seems he was pointing an accusing finger at some of his colleagues.

In 2018, the anchor was heavily criticized after announcing that he was willing to sell his kidney to sort out ‘pressing’ financial issues.

He even shared his mobile number and emphasized on the urgency of the matter.

Swaleh also said that he did not want to bother people and could live on one kidney.

Crucial lessons Kenyans can learn from Alex Mwakideu’s cheating scandal

Published

on

As you may or may not know, a few days ago, popular YouTuber and blogger Edgar Obare exposed the philandering ways of Milele FM radio presenter Alex Mwakideu.

Obare, who is known to expose public figures, shared Instagram screenshots that showed Mwakideu arranging for a meet up with his alleged side chic – Irene Barungi – so that they can do the nasty.

In the leaked conversations, the two are seen referring to each other as ‘babe’ before the media personality asks for a teaser of what awaits him.

When the scandal broke out, many people, including myself, expected Mwakideu to come out guns blazing and claim that the conversation is fake while pointing a finger at his detractors but none of that happened.

Instead, he opted to keep quiet and acted like he was not the talk of the town. I know this because I kept checking his social media accounts for a statement. Before we knew it, Kenyans had forgotten about the scandal.

There’s a crucial lesson that other people who are in the limelight and Kenyans in general can learn from all this and that is the fact that the more you talk about something is the more it sticks in people’s minds.

Truth is that if Mwakideu had gone the Jalang’o way and issued a statement on his social media accounts, we would still be talking about it to date because, well, he has given us a reason to continue talking about it.

By completely avoiding the story, despite the criticism he got on social media, it died a natural death and that means that it’s up to whoever who saw the screenshots to decide if the presenter was really sleeping with his colleague.

And to be honest, it doesn’t really matter whether they are having an affair or not because they are of legal age and I believe they are not mentally incapacitated.

Njugush who has always been proud of his little boy said: “He makes my heart so full”.

His close friend Abel Mutua advised the proud dad to shut down the internet since Tugi had already won the game.

It is interesting to note that the little boy already grasped Kagwe’s accent which was evident in his short speech.

In another video the funny boy was recorded saying that they were eating grass while having dinner with his dad.
