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 Kenyan 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.
