Citizens from across Western Kenya have applauded the birth of the Western Kenya Times as a great milestone towards achieving the desire to have the voice of the people of Western Kenya properly articulated.
Many have commended the team behind the new brand for work well done and promised to fully support its growth.
“I am so happy for the birth of the Western Kenya Times. This will unearth many things encompassing our social, political, economic, and environmental issues as Westerners. We have so many stories to tell and with this, we are privileged to tell our own original tales without fabrications contrary to how some outsiders do,” wrote Hosea Namachanja, alias Chozi la Kunguni, a journalist from Bungoma County working with the Mt Kenya Times.
Another one expressed fascination with the work behind the WKT.
“It is a new dawn in Western Kenya as Western Kenya Times (WKT) takes the media stage by storm. I want to take this early opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the entire team which is behind the birth of the WKT. Through it, Western Kenya and the entire country are now reduced into a mere village, this is a great milestone,” said Bernard Sikuku, an educationist and student of Moi University from Kakamega County.
Leaders were not left behind. Some acknowledged the brand as great creativity that is going to open doors for the youth.
“They say if you want to do something, do it better than anyone else to the best of your ability. The WKT is a big achievement and I see the young team behind it growing even bigger. This is also an opportunity for other youth to shine too,” said Hon. Saphrine, a political aspirant from Lugari, Kakamega County.
Others praised the new website saying it is the best in the region with its unique design and diversity in content.
