Last night, Citizen TV’s Hussein Mohammed hosted Kabando wa Kabando and Tom Ojwang on Monday Special. The latter was to represent CORD with the former representing Jubilee. This is the third time Kabando was appearing on the show in as many weeks.
For the last two weeks, Kabando has established himself as ‘no push over’ in debates, and last week his boss in the Sports ministry Ababu Namwamba was at the receiving end. Kabando has constantly rubbished the opinion polls commissioned by Citizen TV, citing the large differences in the results. Last night however, he went as far as accusing Citizen TV of campaigning for Raila, adding that the fact that the opinion polls were sponsored by the station is suspect. Constant attempts by Hussein Mohammed to calm the assistant minister down were received by ‘you’re gagging me’ claims. Kabando had his way, and he successfully painted Citizen TV as Raila’s and CORD’s propaganda tool.
Kenyans on social media were however not happy with the way Kabando conducted himself. Many were particularly not pleased with how he raised his voice at both the host and the CORD representative.
