“This was all my idea to bring all my friends in the media to share the little I can offer and also pray for this nation that this Covid-19 pandemic leaves us very fast,” said Masai.

Journalists drawn from mainstream media houses in Nairobi converged in Kajiado to celebrate their hard work under coronavirus strain.

The more than 50 journalists from most of the radio, TV and newspaper companies in Nairobi and Kajiado met on Saturday at the farm of Ildamat Ward MCA, Samuel Teum.

The journalists adhered to all the Ministry of Health protocols before feasting on several goats and sheep that had been prepared for the feast.

Cool Music

The sound of cool music, the serenity of the location and the fresh breeze with a weak wind sending the strong smell of roast meat in the direction of the guests was awesome.

The DJ seemed to understand the test of every guest as he did not disappoint anyone. He rocked the young and the old in equal measures.

The movement of meals from the bush kitchen was well coordinated with the arrival of guests. Journalists eat tough meals, and maybe that is the reason ugali stood supreme as the official companion of roast and fried meat. 

Robert Masai

All the guests were hosted by Citizen TV radio journalist Robert Masai, who said he organised for the feast in the last several months.

“This was all my idea to bring all my friends in the media to share the little I can offer and also pray for this nation that this Covid-19 pandemic leaves us very fast,” said Masai.

Masai said journalists were part of the country’s frontline service providers and that the fraternity had also lost a number of its members to the pandemic.

“We are here to celebrate those who have remained committed in service despite this pandemic. Together as professionals, we shall stand united,” said Masai.

The Star

Star’s senior writer, Kurgat Marindany, thanked Masai for pulling a large number of journalists from Nairobi, Narok, Machakos and Kajiado together in the shortest time possible.

“It is not easy to bring together such several journalists in a short time. This is wonderful and today we have witnessed the spirit of togetherness among the members of the Fourth Estate,” said Marindany.

Teum, a member of the Kajiado county assembly, said he is proud to be the first politician in the county to host almost 60 journalists from four counties and those who serve in the biggest media houses in the country.

“I provided my land and they came with their goats, sheep and drinks only,” said Teum.
