#JournalistsUnderSiege: Journalists threaten govt with media blackout

08 September 2016, 13:54 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Journalists from different media houses in Nakuru County have Thursday morning held a protest in solidarity with their colleagues countrywide.

The journalists who were protesting murder, harassment and intimidation of their colleagues presented a petition to the Nakuru County commissioner Joshua Nkanatha, which was received on his behalf by the deputy County commissioner Omar Beja.

At one point, the journalists threatened to give the County security team a total media blackout after the County commissioner kept them waiting before receiving the petition.

The petition was later received by the deputy County commissioner Omar Beja who promised the protesting journalists of their security.

Cases of targeted attacks and killings of members of the fourth estate have in the recent past escalated with the latest case being the killing of Kilifi-based Standard journalist, Joseph Masha and Kitale-based freelance journalist, Dennis Otieno.
