I have just seen it in the papers that Macharia Gaitho and Jaindi Kisero have retired, a polite way of saying that their new boss, Tom Mshidi has sacked them. Could it be a case of the new boss trying to establish his authority and sweeping out the old systems?

For those in the know what is happening at NMG?

Macharia having to state that he did it by own volition, I read duress. Macharia and Jaindi are veyerans and I guess Mshindi felt like he cannot control them because they are his peers. he needs young blood that adores and fears him in equal measure so he can turn the thumscrews

do you know the so-called uganda sugar issue would be a non-issue if it was not for NMG? Do you know one of the Editors, mutuma mathiu, on fri 7th openly threatened the jubilee government for creating a central government media buying bureau? do you know that the establishment of that bureau means the end of the million shillings per page spreads by Kenyatta Uni and others will be reduced to a 16th of a page directing one to a website? Have you wondered why every alternate day their flagship, DN, has a correction, clarification or apology at the bottom of page two from a story the carelessly splashed either on the front or back page? Interesting times are coming to the NMG.

I agree that they have a tendency of fanning stories to suit the agenda of some of their benefactors. I'm also not comfortable with the level of extravagance and waste of public resources by central, regional governments and state agencies in the placement of advertisements.
This central government media buying bureau will hit them hard and wataachiwa obituaries. I did not see Mutuma Mathiu's piece, let me check from my archives courtesy of @highschooler or @Aurak

I also think CouchP might be Macharia Gaitho. No wonder he suddenly has lots of time on his hands to fight with boys eating loquats and chase after Mama Dan. Gaitho stays in Nairobi West and so does couch, End of discussion.
