NTV journalist Larry Madowo has been asked by the DCI to record a statement over an interview he had with National Super Alliance strategist David Ndii.
In a letter dated Tuesday, December 5, the CID instructs the Nation Media Group to avail the journalist for questioning regarding an interview he conducted with the the renowned economist and Nasa policy head on August 22, 2017 just days after the general election.
“To facilitate our investigations, please avail the news anchor the interviewer in the above matter to come assist in the investigation and henceforth record a statement.” The letter seen by Zipo.co.ke reads in part.
Dr. Ndii hit the news on Sunday evening after he was dramatically arrested while holidaying with his family at the luxurious Leopards Beach Resort in Kwale county with accusations of incitement.
He was released a day later (Monday, November 4) on police bond after spending 24 hours in custody.
In a quick rejoinder, the management of NMG said “Neither Larry Madowo nor NTV will record a statement.”
In the said interview on NTV, Larry Madowo invited the controversial Ndii to share Nasa’s next move after Uhuru Kenyatta was declared winner of the August 8 poll.
Ndii who is never known to mince his words, sensationally declared that the Opposition would call for mass action to protest what they reckoned was a flawed electoral process.
“We will call for mass action. We have been calling for mass action since 1992, and we will not stop as long as people try to restore dictatorship, even if I die,” Ndii had said.
Ndii who has been vocal about some parts of Kenya seceding, said the time was ripe for citizens have been sidelined for years to from their own autonomous state.
The Nasa strategist was recently tasked with leading a 7-member task force whose aim is to actualise the coalition’s People’s Assembly and push for fresh elections as part of electoral reforms.
Nasa co-principal has declared he will be sworn in as president on December 12 (Jamhuri Day) by the People’s Assembly.
