The live broadcast of Kenya's former President falling down, during a public function, has been interpreted and interrogated from conflicting perspectives. But should those images have been beamed as is, or should the TV cameras have been turned the other way?
Well, it does raise some ethical considerations for media houses. However, the incident just happened after Mwai Kibaki had given his address and the cameras were still trained on him.
I'm sure no local media house intended to embarrass the former Head of State. Perhaps an astute director might have been able to choose between carrying on with the live pictures of Kibaki falling, and taking a cutaway.
That aside, the reactions in social media circles ranged from the humane to the deranged.
