Tim Jacobs: This crook is Multichoice Africa CEO
In line with our continuing series of exposing corporate malaise in Nairobi, we have stumbled on a case-study that explains our earlier article on how Kenyan companies have been wrecked by cronyism, favouritism, nepotism, and start-ups are now making more money than the so-called “big” corporates.
We have spoken of dwindling revenues by Media, Advertising and other companies, because employment is not based on merit but rather on skewed human resource algorithms that put education (from moribund Kenyan universities), family ties, bribery as the sole criteria for employment in Nairobi.
It is impossible for someone with a good idea to make it in Kenya, because the system has been choked by old retarded bastards, for instance Wachira Waruru, Farida Karoney, Ian Fernández, Linus Kaikai, Joe Ageyo, Emmanuel Juma, Sam Shollei, Patrick Quarcoo, who only employ those whom they want to, and not necessarily what the market wants.
Contracts, projects, initiatives are given selectively to those who can part with bribes, which is why we have stopped watching mediocre TV shows like Inspekta Mwala or Papa Shirandula. They claim that’s the standard for ordinary Kenyans, yet the same “ordinary” Kenyans are keeping DVD stalls afloat while collecting foreign-made content like series, movies and documentaries.
Chris Brown was recently in the country and not even one of these mediocre TV stations bothered to televise the concert live. But the same bastards would gladly air a political-rally or crusade live, which is simply trying to condition us to like such crap.
We ask Kenyans to continue boycotting local media due to their abnormal obsession with politics, religion, Nigerian movies, Mexican soap-opera’s, and pathetic local content like Inspekta Mwala.
Today, I received an email shaming DSTV’s Maisha Magic East, for their corruption on their #opwke competition. They had a winner already and used other fans for content purposes. The winners were fixed and this is in their opinion that that was not a fair competition. The rules were that no contestant should work for them and number of likes on Facebook as entry-point to be shortlisted.
The couple that won Jennifer and Daniel go against these rules. They had 19 likes on FaceBook.
Many couples had thousands of likes but they chose someone with 19 likes who is a relative of the marketing manager at Multichoice Kenya. Nyakundi help us out by blogging about it or taking it to Twitter.
Below are some comments from angry viewers of Maisha Magic East. A good station has been reduced and compromised due to cronyism, which has seen its operations and budgets cut down as it is not profitable.
We welcome more comments on the reason why Maisha Magic East is being terminated. What collusion/cartels caused this? How did Sarah Hassan end up shooting a show that had zero ratings? Email me at [email protected]
