Larry Madowo brazenly attacks Wetangula

29 October 2014, 13:53 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Larry Madowo is a man many refer to as a TV hero with his rise to fame through his innovative and highly interactive TV shows, chief among these being the Trend, probably the most watched show in the country.

He also has quite a career as a writer, writing and blogging about issues that we as Kenyans are faced with as a country.

In one such column, he has openly gone out to attack a local politician who goes by the name of Moses Wetangula, for feeling entitled.

Wetangula, a big time opposition leader was recently stopped from boarding an airplane for not having his ID on him.

This act caused him to make quite a bit of noise claiming unfair play. Larry in his post attacks this behavior by the politician saying, " The airport scene is exactly what you would expect from an individual so accustomed to privilege that they have come to expect it – entitlement. A man who represents one of the poorest counties — in fact, poorer than the national average — reminding us all how wealthy and powerful he is.”

He went on to add, "They lord it over you on the roads, with their sirens and road-clearing goons, while you cower subserviently in endless traffic jams. They take over your weddings and funerals, shouting themselves hoarse about worthless political ideologies, while your ceremonies remain suspended".

Though many good points were raised in the article, one of his followers struck out at the writer saying “ If Larry Madowo meets Wetangula today, he won’t discuss the same issues he did in this article; he will take a selfie and post here.” This drama seems to be building momentum on his facebook page as the day goes on.
