Larry Omondi Madowo’s Friday show was one of the most controversial after he was forced to end his own show after great fire from Moses Kuria. The journalist was interviewing Moses Kuria, after he ha been released from the Pangani Police Station together with 8 others who were indicted of hatespeech.
But Larry Madowo went overboard and tried to ‘harass’ Kuria who reacted quite impressively. Kuria told Madowo to go back to school and get trained. He gave other hits such as:
Larry: We are getting criticized for giving a hatemonger airtime.
Kuria: Then why did you invite me?
Larry: Because you ar..you are, url.. url… lalala…
Kuria: Handle your criticism, I will handle mine!
“You are not a politician, so, keep quite and listen to what the politician has to say, or else, become one!”
“I know you people of the media had a dull day when you saw us unite from the cell.”
“What do you want to hear? Madowo, why are you so cynical and pessimistic about the future of Kenya?”
“I’m in the ICT Parliamentary Committee, and we are recommending all journalists to get training. It will really benefit people like you”
“The problem with you, Larry, is that you have preset conditions that other people are bad. That’s why you cant think straight.”
“If you are asking whether I am a hate monger, then you also know you are being subjective, and I wont answer such (silly) questions.”
Across the country, fans criticized Madowo for lack of sense and ‘juvenile’ level of professionalism. This is what they said:
Dikembe Seth Odongo:”Larry Madowo is an overrated lightweight. Typical of those who join journalism from nowhere.”
Arap Doyo: Larry Madowo is a socialite Journalist who should never interview Moses Kuria or anyone serious. The other day, he complained that Ruto turns down all his invitations, and now we can see why!”
