Getting the name of a news source right. That ranks among the most basic of requirements for a news crew. A quick phone call or online cross-checking should clear any doubts. And yet one still comes across two TV stations, one person, but with two names being broadcast.
Granted, getting the proper name of a married woman can be a challenge, in this age of hyphenated appendages.
Again, a news organisation might have its own house style defining how to title news sources, which could restrict reporters to using only two names.
So, there's a slight chance media houses could name the same person differently, especially a married, female news source.
But that could be understandable, if all the individual elements of the collective name are displayed correctly.
In the example above, 'Jane' is awfully out of line, (even if a missing letter 't' could have made all the difference).
The acceptable possible combinations, it seems are: Janet Muthoni, Janet Ouko, Janet Muthoni-Ouko, Janet, or Muthoni-Ouko.
And to clear any lingering doubts, one ought to just have let the fingers either dial the numbers, or take a little walk on the keyboard, to the Elimu Yetu Coalition website.
Beginning the year with regular exercise, is not a bad idea after all!
