In the wake of rising political temperatures, K24 TV management moved in at the last minute and cancelled fiery Tanga Tanga MP Ndinfdi Nyoro’s interview with the station, sending tongues wagging with Punch Line host Anne Kiguta explaining why the show was cancelled.
In a brief statement on its social media platforms, K24 wrote: “We apologize that we will not host Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro as earlier advertised”.
The bold DP Ruto defender was set to feature on Anne Kiguta’s Punch Line show on 18 Oct 2020 with the host offering an apology to her fans, disclosing that she disagreed with the management’s decision to cancel Nyoro’s appearance on the show.
“We at Punchline invited the fiery first-time legislator Ndindi Nyoro on the programme. The Kiharu legislator, as you well know, is a staunch defender of Deputy President William Ruto who has cast his aspersions on the BBI process. That interview has been cancelled.
“As the host of this programme, I have a responsibility to you the viewer and so I must state that this was not my decision and I respectfully disagree with it,” stated Kiguta.
“The management of the station was of a contrary opinion and had their considered views, concerns by which this programme is bound.
“I must also say that this is a decision that is within their rights because as they say, management reserves the right of admission and so my apologies to the viewers of this programme,” she added.
Nyoro hailed Kiguta for her honesty and boldness.
She linked the cancellation to the firm hand of the dynasties in the decision, stating that they cannot stomach the truth.
“Cancelled. Dynasties cannot stomach the truth, not in their media house. But why invite us (Hustlers) in the first place?
“Thank you Ann Kiguta for being forthright. I appreciate your honest apology to the viewers,” stated Nyoro.
