A news reporter Francis Gachuri of Citizen TV has been assaulted at the Wiper Party offices along Othaya Road, Nairobi.

According to reports, Gachuri was assaulted by goons who did not want particular media houses to provide coverage at an ongoing Parliamentary Group meeting.

It is reported that another camera person was also assaulted when she tried covering the fracas.
Gachuri was saved from the angry goons by MPs who tried calming down the situation.

All journalist who had gone to cover the event walked out of the premises in solidarity with the assaulted journalists.

This incident comes amidst reports of infringement of media rights and freedom provided for in the constitution. Recently, there have been calls by politicians for the boycott of particular media outlets and their products owing to the role of media in critiquing their actions.
