Speaking in Kajiado county, Siaya Senator James Orengo said the media group was now ‘reporting events well.’
”Earlier on I asked you to stop consuming Nation Media Group products but they are now reporting events well. Now you can read the Daily Nation and watch NTV.”
The NASA camp accused the NMG of being biased in its reporting. They believed that they were favouring the Jubilee side and was not covering the post election protests that had taken place following Uhuru Kenyatta’s declaration as President.
The government however said the opposition’s boycott of NMG products was reckless and thoughtless.
”“To single out particular newspapers and TV stations for attack simply because of their opinions is not only unconstitutional, it is an assault on the very foundation upon which Kenya’s democracy is founded.
“We therefore condemn the reckless and thoughtless attack on the country’s free press by the Nasa leaders.
“The Government wishes to assure all media organizations in Kenya that their staff and establishments are protected by law from any criminal acts and no amount of intimidation should discourage them from doing their work,” ICT CS Joe Mucheru said.
