Three fake Citizen TV journalists arrested in Nakuru trying to interview Mututho (Video)

Three individuals who were impersonating Citizen TV journalists were on Tuesday 19, 2020 arrested in Nakuru town as they tried to get an interview with former National Authority for Campaign Against Drug Abuse (NACADA) Chairman John Mututho.

The three, two males and a female claimed to be Citizen TV reporters from Nairobi County. However, the former NACADA Chairman got suspicious and raised an issue with their identity when they failed to produce accreditation.

Nakuru County Intelligence Officers and Police officers rushed to the scene and discovered a camera, tripod, and a microphone that were taken to Mwariki Police Station. The police also towed the car they were using.

Mututho disclosed that the three started calling his phone at 8 am in the morning till 11 mid-morning. He stated that they left 10 missed calls on his phone.

He added that he became suspicious when they continued to tell him that the story must be on the lunchtime news. He further added that he did not understand why Citizen TV journalists from Nairobi wanted his statement on Corona yet he had a live link.

“Asubui ya leo ameanza kupiga kitu kutoka kama saa mbili ameweka pressure kitu kaa 10 calls mpaka saa tano ndio simu ya mwisho kabla tukutane nao hapa. Wanasema tu hiyo report inangojewa, it must aired by 1pm today. Sasa nashindwa ni gani hii Corona, mimi hapana Corona. Mimi sibebi story ingine ya Corona sasa ni gani hii hawa watu wa Citizen hawawezi kuja na nimekuwa na live link. Sasa nashindwa hii ni gani tena kutoka Nairobi,” he told the media.

The leader of the fake journalists, Peter Manjau who was also arrested tried to argue his case stating that there was a difference between a Citizen TV journalist and a Kenyan citizen.

“I’m a citizen of this Kenya. You need to understand the difference between Citizen TV and a citizen of this country,” he pointed out.

Manjau has previously been reported to have been arrested in Nyeri under similar circumstances and has several complaints filed against him.
