Editor’s Note: Why the year 2022 much matters to us
The year 2022 is going to be the busiest not only in the history of the country but also in the lives of the people of Western Kenya.
It is a year that Kenyans are going to the ballot to elect their leaders in the much anticipated general elections, politicians are set to make all kinds of moves to woe the Kenyan voter.
Putting this in mind, we at the Western Kenya Times have laid down a solid plan on how we are going to cover the campaigns and political activities because we believe that this is our social responsibility as a media.
With our reporters stationed at every strategic location in the region, we are going to track down every single contestant and bring out their faces so that the public can scrutinize them accordingly and make a wise decision on Election Day.
This is going to be done through countless interviews and a close check and interpretation of the leader’s actions, track record, manifestos and words to the public.
We are going to sieve through the chaff for the grains: not only for political stories but also for social and economic incidents that matter a lot to the Western Kenya citizen.
The editors and journalists at the Western Kenya Times wish you a happy and prosperous 2022!
