Journalists have announced their next move after a Nation Media Group journalist was arrested on Sunday for allegedly soliciting for a bribe.
The Kenya Union of Journalists has announced that it will hold a protest in solidarity with Nation Media Group’s Walter Menya.
The protests will begin from the Nation Center in Nairobi.
KUJ Secretary General Eric Oduor, arguing that Menya was set up, said journalists must say no to intimidation.
“All journalists must come out to say no to intimidation and show solidarity with Walter Menya who was arrested after a setup.”
According to Nation, Menya was arrested following an article he published in the Sunday newspaper.
“We are seeking facts from the investigating authorities to enable us take appropriate action,” Clifford Machoka, head of corporate affairs, said.
Police spokesman George Kinoti, in a statement, said Menya is accused of soliciting money to kill the said story.
He said the journalist will be taken to court but did not specify the charges.
