System ya majambazi! KBC sacks anchor because of UHURU after 5b scandal - See his crimeNews 14:04
Wednesday November 2, 2016 - Renowned KBC news anchor, Roncliffe Odit, was sacked last night over demeaning comments he made about President Uhuru Kenyatta following the many corruption scandals that have rocked the Jubilee administration with the current one being the sh5 billion health scandal which has implicated the President’s family.
Odit was sent to cover the press conference by activist Boniface Mwangi about the planned demonstrations over corruption, filed the report which he also voiced but he failed to edit a certain part where Boniface Mwangi called President Uhuru Kenyatta ‘commander-in-thief’ and allowed the clip to be aired as it was, as well as uploaded it on social media.
“We are calling for this protest, and we are calling all Kenyans to join us on Thursday because it’s important that we stand up about corruption and say enough is enough.
The President said that he doesn’t know what to do about corruption. So on Thursday we are going to present him a demand list with what he can be able to do about corruption. He’s slowly becoming commander-in-thief instead of commander-in-chief.
So it is in our own interest as a country to stop the looting of public resources by telling the President what he can do as legally mandated. However, we have a big message; if he’s unable to do his work, if he thinks that he is helpless, incompetent and cannot do his job, we are asking him to resign.
So on Thursday we have a demand list for the President, and telling him legally thing he can be able to do. But if he is unable to do those things, he can actually save this country the theft, the loss of money, the embarrassment and just resign,” Mwangi said in the clip.
Sources have intimated that after the clip was aired, Odit was called immediately to the office of the Editor in Chief who told him to go home without any explanation and that the suspension letter was to be sent to him later.
Te clip has since been pulled down from the internet.
