It has been a tough journey for education Cs professor George magoha recently insulted an education officer on his daily inspection on schools’ preparation of covid measures ahead of Schools reopening in January.
Magoha who’s powers were stripped off by PSC and also Kenyans also expressed their mixed reactions on the incident.
Today Magoha Bodyguard insulted a journalist. Education CS George Magoha found himself at the center of another scandal when one of his bodyguards was involved in a scuffle with journalists. Magoha’s wound is still raw yet another hot iron rod has fallen on the wound.
Speaking Allan Obiero, a journalist attached to Royal Media Services (RMS), revealed an incident he witnessed as CS Magoha was inspecting desks at Kosawo Primary School in Kisumu County on Thursday, November 19.
According to a statement from the Chairman of Kisumu Journalists Network Rushdie Oudia, the victims were Ondari Ogega a Nation Media Group (NMG) photojournalist, and his female counterpart Viola Kosome from People
“I was just going about my duties when the uniformed bodyguard shoved me out of nowhere. It is not right because we were doing our duties and they had invited us, we did not gatecrash,”
“Ondari first accidentally bumped into the officer as the CS was entering one of the classes but apologised as he struggled to take photos.
“In the next classroom, the bodyguard targeted the photojournalist and physically assaulted him below the belt after which he let out a shriek and a small confrontation ensued. The CS did not notice since it was a very big team,” the witnesses said once again.
The same officer whose face was captured by some of the journalists is said to have harassed another scribe in Vihiga by inserting his fingers into his mouth.
“The incidents have not only instilled fear among the journalists but also amounts to sexual assault and suppression of the freedom of the press as enshrined in Articles 33 and 34 of the Kenyan Constitution.
“As journalists in this region, we take this incident with great concern, and shock, especially with the utter irresponsibility and daring face the officer, went on with his harassment in broad daylight and in the presence of the CS,” the Chairman of Kisumu Journalists Network stated.
