Dr Roselyn Akombe Calls Out The Media For Conniving With Those Silencing Protestors In The Country

Dr Roselyn Akombe, a former Commissioner of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of Kenya (IEBC) has taken to social media and called out media houses for playing its new role in conniving with those silencing protestors by muting their voices.

Dr Akombe further stated that despite the media muting their voices, they will be seen running clips on celebrating #Katiba at 10 when they can't uphold tenets of that same Katiba.

This is after police officers confronted peaceful protestors who were carrying demonstrations over the loss of Covid-19 funds at Nairobi Central bussiness district.

The protest was organised the demo to demand accountability for the use of Covid-19 billions amid reports that funds allocated to deal with the pandemic may have been diverted to other uses.

The police claimed that it was against the Public Health Act to hold a gathering of more than 15 people. The protesters were then lobbed by teargas to disperse them.

The protestors called for those involved in using the Covid-19 funds to be arrested. The police later on arrested several protestors as they were seen being bundled into the back of a police van.
