Kenya Union of Journalists (KUJ) Nakuru charter, led by their Secretary General Kioko
According to Kioko, the two journalists are not supposed to be treated as criminals.
He condemned the police for arresting the journalists and confiscating their equipment.
However, Nakuru West OCPD Patrick Olonyi said the two won’t be released because they have a trespass case to answer.
He said the journalists were supposed to report to the police before doing their investigative story.
The Nakuru based journalists were pursuing an investigative story on illegal immigrants of Asian origin allegedly operating a quarry in Nakuru West, who called the police leading to their arrests.
