K24 TV anchor Anne Kiguta apologises after management forces her to cancel an interview with MP Ndindi Nyoro

K24 TV anchor Anne Kiguta opened prime time news with a bold apology after the cancellation of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro interview.

On Sunday, October 18, Kiguta was to host MP Nyoro on her Sunday show dubbed Punchline but Mediamax management cancelled the event.

The anchor apologized for cancelling the interview with Mr Nyoro, a supporter of Deputy President William Ruto and revealed that her bosses had a change of heart.

"We at Punchline invited the fiery first-time legislator Ndindi Nyoro on the programme," Ms Kiguta stated.

"The Kiharu legislator, as you well know, is a staunch defender of Deputy President William Ruto who has cast his aspersions on the BBI process. That interview has been cancelled," she added.

Management's Decision

The K24 anchor told viewers that the decision to not host MP Nyoro was not hers and she disagreed with the position management had taken.

"As the host of this programme, I have a responsibility to you the viewer and so I must state that this was not my decision and I respectfully disagree with it," stated Kiguta.

She further noted that the management had the right to pull such a move that seems to have divergent views from Kenyans on social media.

"The management of the station was of a contrary opinion and had their considered views, concerns by which this programme is bound.

"I must also say that this is a decision that is within their rights because as they say, management reserves the right of admission and so my apologies to the viewers of this programme," she added.
