‘I almost gave up’ says TV reporter Victor Kinuthia after trolls savagely bashed him for his poor English

Royal Media Services reporter Victor Kinuthia was the talk of town after trolls questioned his basic grasp of English and ability to construct a sentence.


Kinuthia was on Monday night (09.09.19) live on ground to cover the arrest of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro and was heavily bashed for struggling to express himself during the live link.

Through a Facebook post on Tuesday morning, the Inooro TV reporter stated that he almost ‘gave up’ when he found his name trending but encouragement from his seniors came in handy.

“I almost gave up when I found myself trending all over after yesterday’s 9 pm news. But after receiving calls and texts from my bosses, colleagues, friends and fans I must say am encouraged.”

Online, renowned journalists jumped to his defence and urged him to keep going despite the harsh criticism.
News anchor Hussein Mohamed asked netizens to give Kinuthia a break since it was his first live link.

“In many professions, you hide your mistakes. In journalism, you broadcast them. So give Victor Kinuthia a break. Was his first live link in a chaotic scene. “He’ll learn like many of us. Let’s revisit this when he makes it in a few years, In Sha Allah,” he wrote.

His sentiments were echoed by Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja who stated that everyone starts from somewhere. Politics guru Yvonne Okwara also weighed in on the matter and vowed that the media house will train Kinuthia.
