“You are to expose corruption, you have a role to expose bad governance and be fair to all.

“What we need is good governance and good leadership, what we need are good leaders saddled with the responsibility of steering the affairs of the country.
“To have leaders that have the fear of God so that nobody will go crying, nobody will go hungry, may God bring us good leadership and may God spare our lives,” he said.
Sodangi also advised journalists to adhere strictly to the ethics of the profession in the interest of peace and national development.
