The decision has been arrived at after NBS viewers took to social media and threatened to boycott the programs of this station, citing the ugly scenario.

“Next time I see Ofwono on TV, I will smash my TV,” threatened one NBS viewer. “The TV station is supposed to protect its panelists from harm. This is a battle of intellect, not physical strength,” tweeted another NBS viewer.

NBS have advertised the slot for a Frontliner, a signal that they have dropped the regular panelist Ofwono Opondo.
