Details on why prominent Pakistani journalist Mr. Arshad Sharif fled to Kenya have surfaced as important figures in the Pakistani government have been implicated in the affair.
According to a story that has been spreading across media platforms, Mr. Arshad Sharif has been evading capture in Saudi Arabia since April, when Imran Khan was overthrown and replaced by a new administration in Pakistan led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
The writer of articles that were critical of the current administration, Mr. Arshad Sharif, apparently left the country because he feared for his safety if they were published.
Currently, a provocative remark made by a Kenyan Journalist from one of Kenya's Media, Citizens Linus Kaikai, has sparked discussion on social media after he purportedly advised people looking to flee their countries to avoid Nairobi because of the situation. As Kaikai spoke about the killing of the Pakistani journalist, he asserted that this was not the first time that individuals seeking protection in Nairobi ran into difficulties. Here are a few responses:
Junior: why hate your country that much....even Colombians love there country so much.
Mohamed: Don't DECAMPAIGN our Country my friend, Did the Pakistan journalist REGISTER with the AUTHORITIES that he had come for SAFETY and asylum so that DCI Amin can give him Special secret Security?,AZIMIO condemn the killing but Control your words my friend.
Owuor: Huyu ndio face ya journalism kenya ama? Mbona opinion yake inakua magnified?
The Pakistani Journalist was shot on the evening of Sunday, October 23, in what the police later determined to be a case of mistaken identity. The officers said that they opened fire after the car he was riding in didn't come to a stop at the roadblock that had been set up nearby.
