Eldoret based journalist harassed by police

28 September 2016, 17:40 Elvis Wasike

Nairobi - An Eldoret based journalist was on Tuesday roughed up by the police while he was covering a demonstration organised by a section of Eldoret residents.

The residents were against the summoning of Governor Jackson Mandago and other leaders by the DCI over the infamous Moi University saga.

Duncan Wanga, a K24 cameraman, was shooting the scenes of the protest when Eldoret West OCS demanded to know why he was taking videos.

Despite the journalist identifying himself to the officer, he was roughed up and his video camera damaged badly.

" I was covering the demonstrations when the officer asked me why I was taking the videos and that's when I was roughed up and my camera destroyed. How  do we work under this police brutality?," he stated.

However, Eldoret based  journalists  staged peaceful protests  to the county commissioner Hassan Abdi's office and County  Commader Nyagah Muchungu following the incident.

The two promised to  do thorough investigatios concerning the issue and there after take stern action against the police officer.

" We cannot allow any journalist to be victimised by anyone in the line of duty. We've heard your pleas and promise to take stern actions," they said.

They stated that they have never heard issues working with journalists and that the incident is very unfortunate.

" This is a democratic country and I want to ask you to go on with your daily activities because your security is assured, "they added.
