Julie Gichuru responds to claims of stalking NASA leader
Veteran media personality Julie Gichuru has come out strongly condemning fake news claiming she was stalking opposition leader Raila Odinga.
Online was abuzz with damning allegations against the former prime news anchor. Among the critics was NASA legislator Ledama ole Kina, senator for Narok County who on his twitter urged Julie to come out and clarify on the matter that has become a subject of controversy.
@JulieGichuru Come out clear on this things am hearing. Hapana cheza na baba intels #RailaReturns— ledama ole kina (@ledamalekina) November 18, 2017
According to Gichuru, she has received death threats following the fake news reports, after she landed at JKIA around the same time Raila did.
Through her official Twitter account, she called upon IG Joseph Boinett and acting interior CS Fred Matiang’i to investigate the incident, terming the allegations levelled against her as “vile, vicious, dangerous and fake.”
Through a series of tweets, Gichuru pointed out that she had travelled to Ghana on Sunday 12th, before heading to Moscow where she moderated a conference on ending TB.
If you are travelling to or from JKIA, no worries, the roads are now completely clear. 15 minute drive from the airport to Langata

Let me be clear for those so determined to believe foolish lies.
I travelled to Accra, Ghana on Sunday to guide sessions on the new media era in Africa for Bloomberg, then to Moscow to a global conference on Ending TB where I moderated. — Julie Gichuru (@JulieGichuru) November 18, 2017
I headed back to Kenya via Dubai with a four hour transit at the airport. I travel light, with only hand luggage by the way.
Dear FAKE bloggers, if ANY gas was found on me or ANY thrratening items, in this era of terror, I would not get through ANY airport.
Duh! — Julie Gichuru (@JulieGichuru) November 18, 2017
I will keep saying this, these FAKE NEWS ninjas are dangerous people. Very dangerous.
And no one is holding them to [email protected] @FredMatiangi
@JBoinnet @wangusi you are leaving this country at the mercy of their vicious trade.
This cannot continue.
Something must be done. — Julie Gichuru (@JulieGichuru) November 18, 2017
