Journalists have accused one their former colleagues of debasing them and referring to them as beggars. 

The scribes claim mheshimiwa has formed the annoying and demeaning habit of blurting out absurdities against them and the journalism profession.

“He believes that all journalists are seeking handouts from him,” a journalist told PowerPlay. 

PowerPlay has gathered that the former scribe recently abused a former colleague in the media, terming him a ‘handout seeker’. 

The journalist told PowerPlay that he was simply following a story and thought it wise to seek opinion of a former colleague.

The telephone conversation degenerated into a ‘dressing-down’ session. 

Journalists are now wondering if it had been mheshimiwa’s habit to seek handouts during his time in the newsroom.

“How else do you explain this kind of behaviour?” the journos posed.
