The truth of the matter is that the ‘Candida Lakony’ photo was a fake; a picture taken in Congo by the RPA and planted in The Monitor at a time when relations between Rwanda and Uganda were at its lowest. Rwanda had journalists in The Monitor on the pay of Dr Emmanuel Ndahiro and Patrick Karegeya. Among then was Andrew Mwenda who has since failed to refute the allegations. Others are still in The Monitor.
The Candida Lakony photo was a fake, proved even by a British expert. It ended up soiling the reputation of The Monitor more. So in that sense, Mr Oguttu was right in rejecting it and but of course Onyango Obbo called the shots there then as I was told, and they prevailed. The Monitor never recovered from that scandal and Wafula Oguttu knows it.
