Tough week for Kenyan Journalists

Tough time for Kenyan journalists

It was a tough week for Kenyans journalists today as top government officials appeared to have no time for them despite them inviting them to cover their functions.

President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered journalists to pack and leave the Kenya School of government immediately after his address to senior police commanders.

The head of state usually holds closed door talks after such meetings, but journalists who attended the function termed his tone when addressing them as hostile.

The president was addressing top police commanders during the launch of the police standing orders where he lauded the police service for a job well done in ensuring the country remains secure.

Elsewhere, at the Communication Authority of Kenya Premises, police officers chased away journalists immediately after they arrived at the facility.

This happened as activists Okiya Omtatah tried to serve the Authority’s officials with a court order directing them to switch on TV stations.
