Churchill Otieno led Kenya Editors Guild has been bribed to remain silent as EABL CEO Jane Karuku continue raining terror in the now collapsed githeri media.
The Kenya Editors guild has done absolutely nothing to serve its main cause. The guild’s mission is to Promote Media Freedom, Credibility and Professionalism something that Nation Media’s Churchill Otieno has failed to meet.
EABL, a publicly owned and traded company has been using its financial links with the current executive arm of government via Diageo to buy the silence of journalists and threaten media houses that don’t accept their brown envelope incentives. They have now opted to use the judiciary, which if CJ Martha Koome doesn’t stand firm as former CJ David Maraga did, is going to be crippled by the introduction of the Ombudsman.
Kenyans need to be told, why Tabitha Karanja, the Founder of Keroche breweries, her tax evasion case was being splashed on both print and mainstream media but the 2 parliamentary probes about tax evasion and unfair business that EABL is facing have never been published by the mainstream githeri media houses that fall under the umbrella of the Kenya Editors Guild.
The Kenya Editors guild has never stood in support of independent journalists that have sacrificed everything they have financially to defend themselves and have professionally learned to stand on the public’s side and share the alternative truth when there is nothing else.
EABL has been facing 2 parliamentary probes that have been dragged in the National Assembly for far too long one would only assume the August house and its members have also been compromised.
The Business Daily, on 17 December 2021, exposed the rot in EABL and what the tax-evading firm was allegedly doing to bypass the law and kill all the alternative truths shared online. The BD Africa were forced and legally threatened to delete an article published under ” EABL entangled in lawyer’s bribery suit”
EABL has been using legal professionals to scare or threaten any print or mainstream media that would dare talk about the perceived buried tax evasion story. This is after an alleged bribery negotiation fails between the designated brokers.
Is KRA turning a blind eye on Diageo PLC because of the firm’s financial muscle and family-oriented businesses relations with the current executive arm in the republic of Kenya?
Lemme tell Kenyans what the Business Daily was threatened by Jane Karuku led EABL to pull down from their site and all social media handles.
