An unbelievable and dramatic tiff between Smriti Vidyarthi and the prominent news anchor has escaped nearly. This was when Smriti politically but firmly refused to read everything on the teleprompter, which shockingly seemed to be flatteringly referring to James Gakara.
This pushed the producer to splash the script on the screen, even though Smriti stayed fast and utterly refused to call Dr Gakara 'good,' which was on the teleprompter.
Gakara is accused of having poisoned his two children to death before trying to end his own life without success.
Smriti Vidyarthi stopped at midway between reading a news item on the dead doctor, who was based in Nakuru before starting again and stopping once again in the middle.
At that point, she seemed to throw out all she needed to read on the TV and gave the item in her own words.
The discomfort created in the studio came to light when she was taken off the screen and replaced with a picture of the script, even while she kept reading her own script resolutely. The script of the teleprompter reads: "The excellent doctor who murdered his children."
The doctor is suspected of killing his two children by injecting insulin, before succumbing himself to health problems.
Nakuru County Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri verified news of his death.
"The Nakuru Level Five Hospital has been transferred by Dr. Gakara. We have notified the family since then," Kiraguri added.
Dr James Gakara, found unconscious in his bed in Milimani Apartments House on Saturday night and was brought to the Intensive Care Unit in Nakuru Five Hospital (ICU).
His daughter and son's bodies ages three and five were also recovered in another room, respectively.
