KUJ angered by lawyer's threat tweets

By Moses Nyamori | March 28th 2016

The Kenya Union of Journalists has expressed its anger over "offensive" social media posts by a Nairobi lawyer against some court reporters.

In a statement Sunday, the union accused lawyer Nelson Havi of smear campaign and intimidation against the journalists, and demanded he pulls down the offensive tweets and apologise within 48 hours.

KUJ Secretary General Erick Oduor condemned Mr Havi of using intimidation to instill fear in journalists over a matter that is active in court.

"The judiciary is a very important arm of the government. That is where aggrieved parties go to ventilate their grievances. Havi wants to dictate what information the public should be told," said Mr Oduor.
