Swaleh Mdoe among 10 Citizen Staff That Have Been Suspended Over Receiving Bribe from Sonko

At least 10 top staff at Citizen TV have been suspended over corruption allegations in which they kill stories. The allegations involve Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko who is said to have bribed them to kill stories that were negative on him during the Kajiado Central by elections.
Sonko is said to have bribed the journalists including Swaleh
Mdoe, Mwanahamisi
Hamadi, Kimeli Arap Kimeli, Yusuf Ali and Shisia Wasilwa to kill a story in which he had been attacked and chased by a group of voters in the area over bribery claims.
Sonko denied the allegations and said they are part of efforts by city politicians to taint his image.
“These politicians are afraid of me and now they are instigating the suspension of my friends at the station. We shall defend them,” he said.
The journalists were suspended for ten days by managing director Faridah Karonei in letters to each of them after a probe.
In the ten days, further probe will be conducted before they come to face the charges.
Meanwhile, for the next 10 days, Kanze Dena
and Lulu Hassan, who mostly appear on TV
on weekends, will be in charge of the Citizen
Nipashe news.
