The 7th of April saw the screening of a chilling investigative peace on KTN by one Mohhamed Ali, the Jicho Pevu series. However it must haveÂ surprisedÂ many to see the face of one Ciku Muiruri in a clip that shows her next to one of the Artur brothers. Well, the Classic 105 drive show presenter has come out to clear the air and set the records straight as to how she appearance on the investigative piece.
In a Facebook post, Ciku goes on to explain that she along with other celebritiies and journalist had attended a party at the Artur’s residence. She also dispells claims that she may have slept with one of the brothers who was allegedly seeing Winnie Mwai who is also a friend of hers. She also lashes out on Moha saying he probably included her in the piece since she refused to give her Winnie Mwai’s cellphone number. Â Read the full post below
â€œYes, that was me with Atur!!!!! Thatâ€™s an old story, LOL! But for those of you seeing it for the first time, it was shot at a bash that the Atur brothers threw for the media back in the day when their activities in Kenya were still a mystery. I was then the Editor of Pulse magazine of the Standard newspaper. Aware that I was attending said bash, was my boss, the then Managing Editor of the Standard, Pamela Makotsi. I was of the opinion, when it came to the Aturs, that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar and she acquiesced. We were both vindicated, albeit I was in a different media house by then, when I eventually landed the interview of decade. More on that in a bit. Back to the bash where, standing next to me and cut out of the shot, Iâ€™m sure on purpose (Perhaps for drama? tut tut) was Eve Dâ€™Souza and Sheila Mwanyigha. Also at the bash was the then Buzz (Sunday Nation) Editor, Adhiambo Odera. Pinky Ghelani was also there and numerous others. Atur lifted me onto a counter to make space for all of us to take a picture. I donâ€™t see the relevance of putting that particular clip (of me only) in todayâ€™s program unless Mohammed Ali was upset that I refused to give him Winnie Mwaiâ€™s number when he called asking for it recently â€“ Dude, you uncover numerous conspiracies and canâ€™t get a simple phone number???Â Â .
Curiously, this clip run on NTV, how do KTN have it?
Anyhow, Winnie is my friend, so sorry, I was not sleeping with her boyfriend. You may remember I was and still am, the only journalist who has ever gotten her to agree to an interview. This AFTER the clip ran on NTV. She knew (as did those that were present when he lifted me that day) that it was made to look like something it was not.
The exclusive interview with Winnie (after the brothers were deported) was on the easy fm breakfast show (which I hosted at the time) and was also filmed by NTV, who subsequently played it on the evening news. Funny thing is that this particular interview was also aired by Jicho Pevu a few months ago (No credit was given to easy fm or NTV or to me). Did they buy the footage or how does this work? Perhaps I should investigate Jicho Pevu myself. Mohammed Ali, please investigate this media bash further and get the original raw footage that has ALL the journalists and radio presenters that were in the shot. Half truths should not be allowed on a program that seeks to have a reputation for uncovering the entire truth. And the next time you run an interview that neither you nor your media house did, perhaps you can CREDIT your source? The name is Ciku Muiruri. Thank you, doll.â€
