“The police asked, who gave me permission to walk at night and who said that journalists were supposed to be walking at night.

“They got angrier and took away my phone, twisted my arm, wrestled me to the ground and took money that was in my pocket,” narrated the journalist.

Angela went on to reveal that the police proceeded to hit his back with the gun’s butt adding that he was also hit on the teeth and suffered injuries on his knee.




One of the journalists from the area voiced his concerns on the plight of journalists being harassed by residents and police.

“The recent incident is something that is shocking because President Uhuru Kenyatta included journalists as essential service providers, but instead of providing security, they are going after journalists.

“We get a lot of challenges here in Turkana, we are beaten by people and police officers,” decried the journalist.

According to another journalist from the area, two members of the fourth estate have become casualties to police beating since the enforcement of the dusk-to-dawn curfew.




Journalists have suffered at the hands of policemen from the first day of curfew as on Friday, March 25, with NTV journalist Peter Wainaina by beaten up by an angry police officer.

On Saturday May 15, Two journalists from Kenya were arrested in Tanzania while conducting Covid-19 interviews after crossing the border allegedly without proper clearance.
