The Kenyan media has been hyping lifestyle audit on public officials . Former prime minister Raila Odinga has supported a lifestyle audit on all government officials ‘ There is no way a government official whose Salary is known can buy a house worth millions in a few months ” President Kenyatta Must take charge- Said a furious Raila in Kisumu Sunday .
But then the Kenyan media wont be left behind . As they campaign for a lifestyle audit on government officials, Some media personalities are swimming in a sea of riches made from Kickbacks . Kickbacks and the Kenyan media are two sides of the same coin . Do you remember when Swaleh Mdoe and Mwanahamisi were suspended after receiving a bribe from a flamboyant senator to Kill a story ? That is one of the cases that Citizen tried to kill but in our dynamically changing digital space, hiding the truth is becoming a nightmare .
