BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,2ND FEB 2018-Nation journalists have gotten reprieve after  High Court  stopped police from arresting them  over Raila Odinga’s swearing in.

Judge Luka Kimaru has temporarily restrained police from from arresting Linus Kaikai, Larry Madowo and Ken Mijungu of Nation Media Group.

The ruling was made on Friday pending the hearing and determination of the suit they filed on Thursday.

The three journalists  spent the night in their newsroom for  fear of arrest, watching plainclothes policemen camped outside on Thursday.

NTV which the journalists work for has since been shut down together with two others KTN News and CITIZEN TV after they broadcast live coverage of the NASA leader’s Uhuru Park ceremony.
