Capital News Bashed For its ‘Insulting’ Headline
Capital FM’s blog ‘Capital News’ is facing backlash following its “To hell with Kahumbu” headline. This comes after the high court allowed Koroga Festival to go on as scheduled at Naivasha’s Hell’s Gate this weekend, winning against environmental conversationalist Paula Kahumbu. Dr. Kahumbu and a section of Kenyans opposed the festival’s holding at the national park citing environmental concerns.
The title and tone in the article is simply rude and unacceptable
This is not about @paulakahumbu it is about the environment
Court ruling or not; the fact remains holding @KorogaFestival at Hell’s gate is violating the fragile ecosystem in the park
