NTV Earns Gangster Points After Using Wazungu’s Photos to Report Monkeypox

Kenyans have praised NTV for using the “right” pictures to explain about the spreading monkeypox disease as cases continue to rise in Europe.

Monkeypox is a rare disease that is caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus which includes the variola (smallpox) virus as well as the vaccinia virus, which is used in the smallpox vaccine.

The Western media has come under fire for selecting photos of black people to explain monkeypox.

Despite the fact that more and more cases continue to be reported in Europe, where the blacks are the minority, international media houses want to depict monkeypox as a “black people” going by the photos they are using.

However, NTV is correcting that and Kenyans are happy.

In its article, NTV has used photos of the whites.


Art Hub: “This looks better, they should be using their own patients to advertise their pandemics.”

Frank Andika: “We want to applaud NTV for good use of imagery.”

Patrick Manjeru: “Thank you @ntvkenya. The only pictures the western media are showing are of Africans yet there’s no single case in Africa.”

Universal Hawk: “For such a long time, congratulations NTV for using an image of a victim of the said virus! Someone gets Gonorrhea somewhere in Europe and a Mutiso photo is splashed all over the world for no good reason.”

Kip Toptier: “Let’s tagg all of them @Reuters @CNN @BBCWorld @nytimes this is what Monkeypox looks like.”

Edwin Wycliffe: “Finally, please link @BBCNews among others where to find the current photos of monkey pox affecting our brothers in Europe.”
