DEFENDERS OF PUBLIC INTEREST OR PUBLIC ENEMY?
It's an often quoted aspiration of the media. To safeguard the public's interest and help guard against excesses by those exercising delegated power, on behalf of the masses. But developments in Kenya seem to suggest that defenders of public interest could as well be the public's enemy.
