The Nation Does it Again and Again

Stephen Wanyama on a recent article in the Daily Nation and its bias against Raila Odinga. Read the rest here.

A lot has been made in the past few weeks about the use of insulting language in politics. The warnings against incitement and provocative behavior were targeted mainly at the political class.

On the 28th of April, under the same campaign that led to a vicious attack on Mwingi South Mp Kalonzo Musyoka, the Nation Group hid behind a Special Correspondent of some sort to issue what is truly a vicious round of invective against the MP for Langata and aspirant for the ODM-K Presidential ticket.
