Good people I've taken a sabbatical from editorial work after a very hectic schedule in last few years. I've done this couple of times in the past.
Nobody has forced me into anything... let's be fair to Jubilee Govt and accuse them on the serious things that they've failed to deliver! :idea:
You should therefore, treat all the rumours, on this matter, with the CARTOON they deserve! Lol!

By AFP
The Jubilee regime is undermining press freedom amid what a media rights group said Wednesday is a “deteriorating climate” in the country.
The report by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) paints a grim picture of a media industry under siege with journalists “vulnerable to legal harassment, threats, or attack, while news outlets are manipulated by advertisers or politician-owners”.
Compared to neighbouring Somalia, where more than 40 journalists have been killed since 2009, or Ethiopia, where journalists and bloggers are regularly jailed on terrorism charges, Kenya’s assault on the press is more subtle but still worrying.

Image
The CPJ and the Media Council of Kenya, a regulatory body, said there were 19 threats against journalists in the first five months of this year, or “almost one a week”.
JOURNALIST KILLED
One journalist has been murdered this year, with the CPJ saying the April killing of John Kituyi, editor and publisher of the small Mirror Weekly newspaper in Eldoret, was “directly related” to his work as a journalist.
“The deteriorating climate for press freedom comes at a crucial time for continued development of Kenya’s democracy and economy,” the CPJ warned.
Despite passing a new, liberal constitution in 2010, Kenya’s government has since introduced “a series of laws that undermine self-regulation and allow for harsh fines and jail terms for journalists”.
The laws were drafted after President Uhuru Kenyatta was elected in 2013.
At the time both he and his running mate, William Ruto, were indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity, one of a list of “sensitive topics” identified by the CPJ. The case against Kenyatta has since collapsed, while Ruto’s trial continues.
“This is one of the most hostile regimes we have seen to press freedom,” David Ohito, an editor at Kenya’s Standard Goup media company, told CPJ.
SITUATION WORSE
Ohito said the situation, “is worse than in the single-party era” of the 1980s and 1990s, a notoriously difficult time for journalists.
Investigative reporter John-Allan Namu, who works for KTN television, told AFP the pressure is “subtle… but you can feel it” and warned of an increase in “social media mob justice”.
Political cartoonist Patrick Gathara, whose satirical sketches appear in the Daily Nation newspaper and elsewhere, said, “there is intimidation but the vast majority is simply buying off the press.”
Gathara told AFP he had refused cash for drawings on two occasions and has had some others rejected by editors but, he said, he simply posted the cartoons himself on social media.
Investigative newspaper journalist Daniel Wesangula at The Standard agreed corruption was a problem, both to report on and in determining what gets published.
“Corruption is big in media. Some editors are paid to kill stories,” he said.
Kenya’s government disputed the CPJ findings.
“The media has never been freer,” said government information secretary Ezekiel Mutua. “There is no reason for journalists to fear.”

By Waweru Mugo
Kenya: Last December, Kenyans woke up to news that in neighbouring Uganda, the Parliament had passed an anti-pornography Bill that would effectively ban women from wearing miniskirts.
Further, the BBC reported that the Bill outlawed sexually explicit material such as music videos or one from wearing material showing breasts, thighs, buttocks or any erotic behaviour intended to cause sexual excitement.
Shell shocked or thought our neighbours were crazy? No need to be or have such an illusion for the puritans have been around in our country since time immemorial.

Image
Here, the small drapery has had mixed fortunes, suffering a partial ban here and there, and few of its embracers eliciting cat calls from passersby and even losing it altogether to thuggish moralists. It has even been labelled a western influence, even as we all know that for most of us, the traditional attire made a mockery of the mini.
Interesting though, we nearly outshone the Ugandan MPs when our own government almost pushed a similar ban shortly after independence. This would effectively have kept the most liked by some and often disgusting cloth to others off the fabric or mitumba stores.
In 1972, President Jomo Kenyatta hinted at banning the miniskirt. Speaking at a rally, Reuters reported, Kenyatta termed miniskirt wear as a wild habit that had fuelled prostitution! He urged parents to help kick out the miniskirt saying that “if this step will not yield fruit, I shall not hesitate to pass a ruling to this effect, so that foreigners who frequent our country may not leave with the notion that Kenya is a prospering market for prostitution.”
It was around the same time that female secretaries in government offices were banned from wearing the miniskirt while on duty — that they “should dress decently at all times”, the Associated Press (AP) reported.
Years earlier, Attorney General Charles Njonjo revealed he had intended to push for such a ban. He was quoted by the AP as telling a local newspaper in November 1967, “I once thought of introducing legislation to ban miniskirts…”
Ugly body parts
Njonjo termed the miniskirt as “human depravity” and ugly! He only slowed down on the ban cognisant that police would have a huge task, perhaps apprehending the many wearing the miniskirt, which was in vogue then. Very unkind to the skimpy skirt, he reportedly said, “I think the miniskirt fashion is ugly… it seems to accentuate the ugly parts of the body — from the knees downward.” But had the issue been raised at the Cabinet level, it certainly would have elicited mixed reactions. It was said that most likely, Commerce Minister Mwai Kibaki would have opposed it. Kibaki was more of a liberal when it came to fashion, and certainly did not mind the miniskirt exposing a woman’s legs!
The AP says Kibaki’s sole aversion was to boots, of which he would comment thus: “They never look right, even with a mini… they cover up the legs, and, after all, a man wants to see a woman’s legs.”
What is or not pornography and morally corrupt would haunt the Kenyan landscape as attempts were made to fight the so-called “foreign” cultural influence. Without any formal cultural policy, Kenyans keen to preserve the country as “African” opposed Western innovations such as miniskirts, historian Charles Hornsby notes in his must read text, Kenya: A History Since Independence. He cites the persistent attacks all the way to inside Parliament on beauty contests, wigs and eye shadow in the conviction they were “un-African”.
The verbal fight through the 1960s and 70s persisted into the 80s. Sometimes in the late 1988, the self-righteous National Guidance and Political Affairs ministry under James Njiru demanded the removal of the popular Drum and True Love magazines, ostensibly for publishing pornography.
Njiru, the Gemini News reported, said the glossy magazines “are particularly shocking in the portrayal of women in erotic poses and in the use of obscene, lewd and sexually provocative language”. In particular, Gemini went on, he took great exception to the publication of half-nude Swazi women performing the famous reed dance for their king.
As the news outlet observed, Kenya at the time adhered to western dress codes, with leaders now and then urging for the dropping of “backward” dressing manners. “Hotels and restaurants insist on ties and jackets after 7pm for dinners. Parliament also insists on ties and jackets for MPs, reports and visitors.”
It would therefore not come as a surprise a few years on when the Nakuru Chief Magistrate Rose Walekhwa ordered a police constable escorting prisoners to court locked up with them for not wearing a necktie.
And only a year ago, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) revised its dress code for lawyers of the High Court, confining the miniskirt and other not so dignified wear off the courts premises. In its dressing edict, female lawyers must not wear sleeveless shirts and dresses while skirts must be at least knee length.

Image
“Female lawyers should not wear revealing clothes,” LSK secretary general Apollo Mboya said.
The year before, girls at Rwathia Girls School in Murang’a caused consternation when they went on strike demanding shorter skirts. Indeed, the miniskirt incident had the Board of Governors at the Anglican-sponsored school expel four girls thought to have incited riots.
The then Education Minister Mutula Kilonzo joined the fray, and even as many parents vigorously protested at the unusual demand, The Standard reported, he suggested that students be allowed to dress in a “modern way”. Schools, he said, must not force girls to dress like nuns. “Why are you dressing them like nuns?…..These girls want to become Kenyan citizens not nuns,” he said sparking fury and placing himself on the firing line of the church, teachers and parents who termed his utterances reckless and shocking.
And so the debate rages on the cloth so popular with the preteens and teenagers.

I think politicians need to grow a thick skin and absorb any satire that comes their way.
To be caricatured in a cartoon is the stock in this trade otherwise known as siasa and public service.
I happen to believe that journalists, even cartoonists can have a political agenda and can use their freedom wantonly when they chose to. And the beauty with caricatures is that you cannot fight back or opine after the fact. In Kenya, where press freedom has only been a staple for only the past decade, journalists will push the envelope to see how much they can get away with. While they are doing this, the subjects of their taunts have no defense. That, I put to you, is not the intent of the laws that guarantee press freedom. If you have a weapon for which there is no defense, and use it to settle scores or disparage someone, you are being irresponsible and abusing the assumptions that make that freedom possible.

To test my proposition, ask your friends whether they agree with what I stated. I can guarantee that the only people that think this is hot air are those people who share Gado's political leanings.

As for why he was fired, they will tell you categorically that it was political pressure - but they will not/cannot produce an iota of evidence.
