Press Freedom: Letter to Kibaki


Dear President Kibaki,

On March 2, 2006 armed police raided the headquarters and printing plant of the East African Standard Group. In addition to destroying equipment including the printing presses and burning newspapers, they shut down the Kenya Television Network television station.

This latest attack follows the jailing of three journalists from the East African Standard newspaper, attacks on the Citizen Weekly, and ongoing harassment of journalists by government-sponsored forces.

I urge you to:

Condemn these attacks in the strongest terms possible.
Dismiss any member of your government who played a role in the attacks.
Live up to your promise to support freedom of the press.

Please copy and paste this on your blog following in Keguro's footsteps. Alterations may be made to suit your need. Thanks and big up mental and afro.

*We will not, should not and never will be cowed by gun totting, mask-wearing thugs sponsored by the government. This is in itself an act of terrorism, state sponsored no less! Washindwe!*
