Just hours ago, a furious and incensed Martha Karua who happens to be the NARC Kenya leader threw caution to the wind as she went after ntv news presenter Mark Maasai as he read the day’s happenings, over what she complained was unfair representation.
All this was despite the fact that Mark Maasai had, just moments earlier, indeed admitted to the error that the station had made, and even gone ahead to offer his most sincere apologies.
It all began during the reporting of an event that involved the NARC Kenya leader, and the former Vice-president, Kalonzo Musyoka.
The wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka and his NARC counterpart Martha Karua had opposed any plan to postpone the 2022 General Election. While speaking during the National dialogue Conference on Electoral Justice in Kenya, Kalonzo said moving the election would interfere with the Constitutional rights of Kenyans to participate in a general election as stated in the Constitution.
On her part, Karua emphasized the need to streamline the country’s election management if the country is to achieve free, fair, credible and peaceful elections.
“The changes that we need for a credible election in 2022 do not require Constitutional Amendment. We need to change the management of the elections in this country and not individuals. We need to go for the systems both at the local and international level,” she said.
She further pointed out that the root cause of electoral injustice in Kenya is impunity by those elected and urged Kenyans to focus on electing leaders who value credibility.
However, when reporting on what Martha Karua said during the meeting, the station gave her an inaccurate name. After the report Mark Maasai offered his sincere apologies for the inaccuracies. However, moments later, while scrolling through his phone, he shared with viewers that Karua had just sent her a strong message expressing her displeasure at their reporting, and once again, had to convey his apologies.
