1 min read

President William Ruto on Friday met at State House the country’s top security bosses following a widespread uproar of brutality against unarmed protestors on Thursday, a meeting whose aftermath saw top police commanders reshuffled ahead of tomorrow’s demonstrations.

According to reports, the president cautioned police bosses, including IG Japhet Koome over the killing of protestors and advised the officers to uphold the rule of law and protect property.

More than 20 journalists have been attacked during two weeks of anti-government protests in the country.

The attacks have increased since the protest began last week, and camerapersons and photographers have become targets of both the state and politicians. The council is demanding that authorities investigate the abuses.

Journalists covering Kenya’s anti-government protests have encountered hostility from the police and national leaders in Kenya Kwanza.

Attacks on journalists on Monday and Thursday have been condemned by media organizations, human rights groups and advocates for media freedom and rights.
