Beginning my pilgrimage into journalism in the 1980s and 1990s, I found few better inspirations than I did in Hillary Ng’weno’s crowd at the Weekly Review.

My dad would religiously buy me the Daily Nation, the East African Standard, the Weekly Review and the Step magazine to complement our evennings together beside his transistor radio, after which we would then talk over what had been reported.

That was a few years before I discovered that an international media order (beyond the BBC and DW radio) existed 🙂

Back to the Weekly ReviewI have been excited to re-read Sarah Elderkin again after quite some time.

She’s the kind of probing journalist you want to have telling your story 🙂

    When others write about Raila, they are Raila haters, when you write about others you love them.Nothing scares votes from Raila more than your rebuttals and malicious propaganda, which are of course slanted. They cannot hide the underlying factor here; a misadvised capitalist agent trying to planr herself at the centre of political power in Kenya. Kenyans do not rubbish or ignore Raila’s sacrifice for a more democratic Kenya, but that does not mean they close their eyes when he errors. Kenyans appreciate your journalistic credentials and political activism, from the days of Nairobi Times in Peponi House, your break forays to San Chique in the company of Mr. Were, Weekly Review and helping Raila to hide from Moi, but the more you try to scare Kenyans from scrutinizing Raila’s record the more you betray being to Raila’s regime what Marianne Brinner was to Moi’s regime. You may have the Language for slanted propaganda, rebuttals and malice which could be an asset, but unfortunately you are a liability to Raila’s campaign.

    Sarah is a brilliant journalist who puts it down as it is. It is fashionable to engage in raila bashing. Sarah should not be given labels for not joining the bandwagon.
