BY KORIR JUMA/NAIROBI,1ST NOV 2017-The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has asked the Police to launch investigations into the incident in which two journalists were assaulted at a Nasa invent in Lavington in Nairobi on Tuesday.
The DPP, in a letter to IG Joseph Boinnet, said the investigations should be done with the aim of charging the suspects in court.
The two journalists Francis Gachuri of Citizen Television and NTV’s Jane Gatwiri, were roughed up by youths who accused the media of bias in reporting the Thursday’s fresh presidential election in which President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner.
Nasa leader Raila Odinga has since condemned the incident and apologised on behalf of the coalition.
The Kenya Editors Guild, the Kenya Union of Journalists and the Media Council of Kenya, described the Tuesday incident as a criminal act and asked the Nasa leadership to identify the culprits and hand them over to the police.
