Jeff in trouble

Celebrated journalist Jeff Koinange has disappointed Kenyans after he announced that he would on Wednesday host Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli on his show - JKLive.

Jeff's announcement was criticised by a number of Kenyans who felt that the journalist has formed a habit of recycling a small group of guests who have little or nothing new to say.

In the past year, Atwoli has graced the JKLive bench on three occasions.


The Cotu boss last appeared on Jeff's show two months ago in February. He had made other interviews in September and July 2017.

Xtian Dela who works as a social media promoter for JKL, responded by stating that most of the potential guests have been declining to appear on Jeffs show.

"Bring us someone "NEW" and who will accept to come on JKLive and we will gladly host them. Most of the people we approach wanaringa sana kutokea kwa bench, it's not our fault. At the end of the day the public MUST have a show, even if it mean we repeat the same people," Dela stated.


Earlier on, Jeff fell victim to fake news after some bloggers led a campaign accusing him of sanitising those linked to the Sh9 billion NYS theft.

The journalist's attackers had gone ahead to create a fake poster falsely claiming that Public Service PS Lillian Omollo would be the guest on Wednesday's edition of JKL.

Here are some of the reactions to Jeff's announcement that he would host Atwoli:
