Cabinet Secretary of Interior, Joseph Nkaissery, accused the journalist of publishing “private information”, and alleged that the story "exposed Kenya’s security forces to significant risk" ; he ordered the detention of Ngarichu until he revealed his sources. Other media outlets were summoned in relation to the same issue.

ACHPR: National law must protect Freedom of Expression

Media practitioners, journalists, cartoonists, and human rights defenders continue to face attacks and are forced to carry out their work under constant pressure from the authorities and non-state actors and in environments of widespread impunity. For example, between January – October 2015, 71 journalists have been individually attacked in Kenya but only 3 cases have been fully investigated and the perpetrators taken to Court. Three days to celebration of 2015 World Press Freedom Day, John Kituyi, publisher and Editor of the Weekly Mirror newspaper was killed and to date no one has been held responsible.
