David Ndii Loses Job as Nation Media Group Columnist

  • National Super Alliance (NASA) Chief strategist David Ndii has lost his job as a columnist with Nation Media Group (NMG).

    Ndii, who is also the Opposition's political and economic strategist, has been penning down the weekly column every Saturday for the past four years.

    According to reports by Business Today, Saturday Nation editors were instructed by their Editor-in-Chief Tom Mshindi to ask Ndii to cease writing the weekend column from next week.

    Ndii was hired by Dennis Galava, former managing Saturday Nation editor, who was fired after he wrote an editorial criticising the poor performance of President Uhuru Kenyatta's government.

    Most of Ndii's writings in the newspaper have stirred public debate especially Kenya is a cruel marriage, it's time we talk divorce, through which he put forward the issue of secession for discussion.

    "When people find that they cannot live together they part company. Kenya is for the most part an abusive relationship. It is about time we start talking about ending it. This ought not to be a difficult conversation," he wrote.

    In his latest piece, Why IMF, CBK haven't been telling Kenyans the truth about our debt, he accused the two bodies of fabricating figures about Kenya's revenues, expenditure and debt.

    "The bankers are mixing up their stocks and flows. It is like taking an overdraft, putting it in a fixed deposit, and then your banker assures your creditors that they don’t have to worry about your cash flow since you have a strong liquidity position,” he wrote.

    The termination of his contract comes barely a month after the Aga Khan-owned media group advertised positions for columnists and contributors to its various platforms.
