Renowned journalist Stephen Letoo took to social media to share how the Fourth Estate fellows race against time to deliver their news items to their audience.
In one instance, the Citizen television reporter recounted how viewers almost missed a story from the busy Malaba border due to the gridlock of trucks that had blocked the way, but he managed to deliver the piece within 15 minutes.
However, taking to the comments section, one of the youthful reporter’s fans poked holes in his reporting, accusing him of being biased.
Letoo mostly covers the Azimio La Umoja political rallies and his critics have deemed him to be an ardent supporter of ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
Fabian Sinyei asked Letoo to be professional, saying that will make him be loved by everyone.
“Stephen Letoo, I wish you could be just a professional not biased or take sides. You could be loved by everybody. Be the best neutral solution,” said Fabian.
In a rejoinder, the journalist told off Sinyei saying he was not after being loved by men.
The reporter added that so long as ladies loved him, he was good to go.
“Fabian Sinyei, mimi bora madame wanipende..wababas kama wewe mnaweza kwenda huko mimi sii shoga,” said Letoo.
Letoo’s response elicited mixed reactions.
Nick Sivah said: “Stephen letoo is a professional. Covering Azimio campaigns doesn’t mean he belong to that outfit, it’s just a deployment. Next week you will see him in another camp and so on.”
Ken Olindi said: “Boss, uko na mushene tu sana. Which Citizen TV do you watch? The CitizenTV I watch….. naona news za Kenya kwanza….. Azimio la umoja na zingine nyingi tu….. tafadhali wachana na hii tabia mbaya ya kupayuka payuka kiholela.”
Thunder Cloud said: “Letoo is never biased, I don’t know why tangatanga crooks always think he is biased.”
Brian Odipo: “These guys should watch CNN/Fox News. There lies the true definition of bias.”
Mark Sumbah said: “Letoo is not biased he is only covering Azimio rallies just like Sam Mogina and Chemutai is working on Kenya kwanza..If not then all of them are biased.”
