Kenyan Government 'Snake' Bites Independent Media

In what is one of the most disgusting violations of press freedom, Kenyan police have confirmed they were responsible for the carnage at an independent television station and for burning thousands of copies on an independent newspaper.

Just who does Mwai Kibaki think he is? If his government wasn't so interested in sticking its corrupt hands in state coffers, there would be no need for such repression. Exactly who is going to be applauding this move? This won't shore up report or intimidate anyone. It will make people more determined to vote KANU next time, and give momentum to a press determined to show the self-serving government for what it is.
