Citizen TV Presenter Hussein Mohamed has recently been on the receiving end of heavy trolls following his announcement that he would be interviewing Deputy President William Ruto on “graft, truth and politics” on Tuesday night.
Kenyans on social media ridiculed Hussein with some telling him that he would be the interviewee and not the other way round.
Others insinuated that the presenter is a beneficiary of Ruto’s infamous “brown envelope” given the frequent studio invites he gives the Deputy President.
His interviews with Ruto have for long been criticized for being “too soft” with important questions being ignored or completely left out.
Sources have over time confirmed that these interviews are just PR exercises where the interviewer thoroughly briefs the interviewee on what to expect with a few questions getting thrown out for being too “controversial”.
We sampled some of the reactions below.
Another night of straight lies #NewsNight

When was DP Dr. Ruto last interviewed by a journalist other than Hussein Mohammed? Or on a TV station different from Citizen TV?
