Alfred Ng'ang'a Mutua has lost the plot

I came across some advertisements in Ng'ang'a site ( and I'm amazed at the lengths Kibaki will go to entrench himself in power. All he'd have to do to stop the upheaval would be to call for a recount. But he, like everyone else, knows Raila won in 6 Provinces, and he could only manage Central and Eastern. I don't know about you guys but this looks like solid propaganda to me... and why are they targeting Maina Kiai? He's the only person who's listening to the actual wananchi, if you ask me. Personally, I find Ng'ang'a's novice attempt at propaganda laughable, and quite honestly, very desperate. Judge for yourselves...

And here's a real gem from the good doctor, and now writer of local soap operas extraordinaire:

The Government by requesting media houses not to air live press conferences and call-ins into radio shows wants to empower editors to be in control of the information relayed by their media houses.

In the prevailing environment, some people are using the media to call for violence and to incite members of the public to engage in violence. By running these comments live, at the prevailing emotional state of many citizens, can be dangerous. However, editors are free to screen whatever they want a few minutes later after they have reviewed the material.

Technically other than breaking news there isnt too much in terms of live broadcasts on tv.
Because even news is edited before time for clarity and time. Not to say that I agree with what the muzzling of the media but we both know that editors can choose to broadcast the exact same thing they were going to broadcast live.
