Citizen Tv’s former investigative journalist Purity Wambia has revealed that she is stranded and is on the verge of being homeless in the United States of America after fleeing Kenya.
While speaking to the US state department, she revealed that her life hadn’t been a bed of roses two years after an explosive documentary that revealed rogue policemen who hired guns to thugs and the lives of innocent Kenyans were taken away by criminals who used these guns. The documentary was entitled gun galore.
A US-based organization flew out Wambia after she began facing life threats from unknown people. Wambia told the panel that her experience and toil would be wasted in a foreign marred with financial constraints as the organization had cut communication with her.
”The cultural shock..takes a while to process..go out there and do any available job.”
‘‘Just from reading the headline, I could tell this is someone who didn’t seek to come to the USA. America ni ya kujituma-sio kuletwa. Those of us who sought every way possible to be here, OVERSTAYED, and then figured our way into the system are doing relatively better than rich kids that used their parents’ money and a whole swath of people that came on a green card and got the right to work from day one. Huyu anataka atafuniwe na amezeshwe. She’s a glitch in the equation of the American Dream story.”
‘‘Did she resign, or was her contract terminated? Unaeza pata aliresign unceremoniously. Citizen TV has proved to be somehow kind to its suffering employees once in a while kama the Swahili news anchor wa hadithi za babu.”
‘‘She was expecting to be perpetually supported? What an entitlement! If life is hard for her abroad she can come back home.”
