Newspapers shape the opinions of their readers so media outlets that are governed by political interests or parties often bias their views and influence their readers in a way that is loaded with propaganda.
That is what makes independent media companies such the National Media Group and its Daily Nation newspaper so vital to the social health of Kenya. The editorial director Wangethi Mwangi is an independent thinker who supports no particular agendas. It is truth first and that is the way it should be.
Along with fellow paper staff Joseph Odindo and Linus Gitahi Mr. Mwangi and the National Media Group help keep things open and real for the people of Kenya.
