Raphael Tuju has shared a classic throwback by reading a news item on NTV, even though the story in question was one criticizing his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Moments after sharing his thoughts as a panelist during a political talk show, the senior politician was challenged to read the news, a challenge he gleefully accepted.
But then came delicate matter of reading news on Kenyans’ bitter reactions to the high cost of living which they blamed on President Kenyatta’s government.

However, Tuju, who is the Jubilee Party Secretary General and Cabinet secretary without Portfolio in President Kenyatta’s government, delivered in an impressive fashion.
The former Member of Parliament for Rarieda was once a senior journalist and TV producer with his career in the newsroom dating back to the 1990s when he anchored prime time news at KTN.
