The last time NTV and KTN had a direct contact, it was for a good course. Few days ago they had a direct contact but it was for the course of business, not pleasing to everyone.
During the Post Election standoff of 2017, Ken Mijungu from NTV reported for KTN news during the NASA ‘swearing in’ ceremony, and almost everyone was pleased.
But few days ago, NTV took a jibe at KTN News, implying that they had less followers as compared to them.
