Journalists protest harassment, intimidation


On Thursday morning, tens of journalists and other stakeholders gathered at Uhuru Park to protest recent cases of harassment against fellow journalists.

A few days ago, Kilifi-based ‘Standard’ journalist Joseph Masha died in mysterious circumstances in his Kiwandani home, Kilifi. Then just days later, journalists Julius Kariithi and James Mwangi were beaten up by security guards in Murang’a County as they covered protests at Kakuzi.
