Drama ensued as Trans Nzoia woman rep Lilian Siyoi found herself in a hard corner after journalists snubbed her during a county function on Monday.
The women rep who had attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the new county government headquarter in Kitale, found herself in unfamiliar territory after journalists removed their equipment including cameras immediately she was ushered in to speak by the county CECM for Public Service Management Sam Ojwang.
The Kitale based journalists claim the Woman representative’s handlers have in the recent past mishandled the media by creating divisions among the scribes.
“The team is so daring that it does not cover any other speaker in a function rather than the women rep a good example being the Saturday tricycle distribution in kiminini where they only covered Siyoi and ran off without providing coverage for the area MP Kakai Bisau, this is unprofessional and uncalled for .”noted some of aggrieved journalist.
Efforts by her handlers to plead with the scribes to return their equipment fell on deaf ears as the defiant journalists walked out of the event .
The more than thirty journalists have vowed to give the woman rep a media blackout demanding a better working environment with the legislator
