Kenyan TV journalist Jeff Koinange is in trouble again! This evening, he hosted former South Sudan’s Chief of General Staff General Paul Malong on his talk show and Kenyans didn’t seem to approve of how he handled the show.
Mr Malong was among the people featured in an exposé “The Profiteers” by John Allan Namu as he brought to light how warlords were making millions of dollars at the expense of South Sudanese lives. Kenyan TV, KTN refused to air the documentary due to influence by top officials from South Sudan including General Malong himself and Namu had to post it on YouTube instead.
The exposé also showed how South Sudanese money was being laundered through Kenyan bank KCB and how the Kenyan government was giving it a blind eye.
Mr Malong, whose source of wealth is highly questionable, allegedly owns huge property in Kenya where he frequents.
Kenyans have had enough of Jeff hosting Malong and Lawrence Lual and went all out to air their opinions.
Isnt this one of the profiteer? What is with Jeff and bringing criminals on TV to sanitize them.

He should be arrested on arrival.He doesn’t deserve to be interviewed!!He is a bellicist who has over the years orchestrated violence in his country subjecting his people to suffering.The problem with Kenyans is that we like glorifying wrong people and vilifying good ones.
