Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria, is now trouble after threatening the Nation Media Group.

According to Kuria he will make sure he  cut government advertising and publicity on Nation Media Group (NMG) for its persistent criticism through investigative journalism. 

Kuria  further warned the management of government agencies advertising with NMG to halt their spending lest they lose their jobs. According to Kuria, it was no longer tenable for the Kenya Kwanza administration to continue advertising through the firm.

You need to decide if you are a newspaper, broadcasting house, a media station or an opposition party, I have stated that starting tomorrow if I see any government agency placing adverts in Nation Media, the person responsible will be fired.

In a follow-up statement, Kuria trolled NMG that it would only advertise auctions and obituaries. 

Nation Media Group, prior to Kuria’s confrontation, aired an exposé where it alleged that the ministries of Trade and Agriculture, under CS Mithika Linturi, misappropriated over Ksh6 billion in an oil scandal.
