Following the events that transpired at Naivasha as Nominated Senator Paul Njoroge shot in the air on Tuesday to stop workers from closing down a Shell petrol station he operates on Nairobi-Nakuru highway.
Celebrated TV personality Julie Gichuru on Tuesday lectured the team at NTV over poor reporting of the story where nominated Senator Paul Njoroge shot at Vivo Energy CEO Polycarp Igathe.
Here are the details and equally dramatic photos of the gun totting senator, in case you missed it:
The Story goes that; Vivo Energy hired the workers to confiscate equipment after the Senator allegedly failed to follow some rulesTrouble started in the afternoon after workers moved in and demolished part of the station entrance before carting away fuel pumps.
Senator Paul Njoroge arrived shortly after to stop the exercise after obtaining an order from Naivasha law courts.The order issued by Principal magistrate Esther Kimilu restrained the fuel company from interfering, taking over or terminating the contract until the case is heard and determined.
Njoroge engaged the workers in a heated argument but some continued with the demolition, thusly forcing the Senator to fire in the air. The irate and emotional Njoroge blamed business rivalry for the incident, adding that he complied with all regulations.
Former Citizen TV news anchor Julie Gichuru has lectured NTV over poor reporting of the story where nominated Senator Paul Njoroge shot at Vivo Energy CEO Polycarp Igathe. Yes, shots were fired for real.
In their news broadcast, NTV reported Njoroge as drawing a gun on Mr. Igathe.
Their reporting made Julie Gichuru see red. How can they say, no shots were fired? How? This pushed her to give her opinion about this on her Instagram page.
She shared a video of the incident and wrote,
“HOLD ON NTV, YOUR ANGLE ON THIS STORY IS GUN-TOTING? THIS FOOTAGE SHOWS THE BUGGER SHOT AT IGATHE. SHOT AT HIM. HE IS LUCKY HE MISSED AND IGATHE IS LUCKY TO BE ALIVE! THIS SENATOR SHOULD BE DISARMED AND ARRESTED IMMEDIATELY FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER!” JULIE GICHURU CRIED.
