KOT fury over CNN's story on militia group

02 March 2013, 10:10

Nairobi - Kenyans online have reacted angrily at a CNN story about an unnamed militia group preparing to cause mayhem in the Rift Valley in the election period.

According to the Daily Nation, CNN uploaded “Kenyans armed and ready to vote” late Thursday on their website and broadcast on the CNN as a curtain-raiser to Kenya’s elections scheduled for Monday, showing four people whose faces are obscured carrying, what the reporter Nima Elbagir, describes as “guns fashioned from iron piping, home-made swords and bullets bought from the blackmarket”.

The furor from the online community was that the story ran on the day that there was a rally at Nairobi’s Uhuru Park about peaceful elections, yet the story did not even mention the rally, or the preparations by the police to ensure acts of crime and violence do not happen at election time.
