KTN managing editor Joe Ageyo has distanced himself from a viral election poster showing him as a candidate for the Bondo parliamentary seat.
According to the poster, the renown journalist is ‘vying’ for the seat on a Jubilee ticket.
Taking to his official Facebook page, Joe disowned the poster saying he has the ‘best job in the world and does not intend to trade it for any other.’
This was his full statement:
Over the last 24 hours I have received inquiries from far and wide regarding certain malicious posts on social media about myself. If I didn’t care so much about the millions of Kenyans who have supported my work as a journalist for the last 18 years, I would not have dignified these posts with a response. But I greatly respect my viewers and would not want to torture them with endless guesswork about my professional standing. To be clear: I do not come from Bondo Constituency. I have the best job in the world that I do not intend to trade for any other. The only election related plan I have is to ensure that KTN News, the country’s only 24-hour news channel, whose founding editor I am, has the best election coverage in the country, come next year.
