Yesterday, Baringo County, Senetor Gideon Moi cancelled the appearance of Elgeyo Marakwet County, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on the KTN’s show Checkpoint. He was otherwise replaced by UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey. 

“I am sorry to let you know that my colleague Sen. Moi has cancelled my appearance at KTN Checkpoint Tonight. I have always supported media freedom in Kenya. Unfortunately the struggle between media ownership &editorial independence is real…”

K24’s Anne Kiguta has otherwise sent an open letter to Murkomen to appear on her show, Punchline which airs every Sunday on the local TV channel. “Pole sen. I extend an open invitation to you on PUNCHLINE @K24Tv You are welcome to step into the ring” She tweeted.
