Human right groups stop police from arresting Larry Madowo, Linus Kaikai and Ken Mijungu

Last evening plainclothes officers were at Nation Center to arrest Larry Madowo, Linus Kaikai and Ken Mijungu. News about the impending arrests sent panic within media circle.

NTV and several NMG journalists sounded the alarm about the impending arrests on social media. Apparently police were right outside Nation center waiting for the three to come out.

Linus Kaikai was to be apprehended over his statement that the government is muzzling the media. Larry Madowo and Ken Mijungu were also being sought for openly speaking about government shutdown of NTV and Citizen TV.

Human right groups spring to action

Human rights crusaders and journalists rushed to Nation Center after word went round that police were waiting to arrest Kaikai, Madowo and Mijungu.

The presence of human rights groups and journalists stopped the police from making the arrests. The shutdown of the TV stations has sparked fears the government is rolling back media freedom.
