Two journalists who were on Saturday allegedly beaten by General Service Unit (GSU) officers arrived in Mombasa Sunday morning from Tana River.
The two, Nation journalist Nehemiah Okwemba and Citizen TV’s Rueben Ogachi, were reportedly beaten by the GSU officers for interviewing residents in Tana River County who had claimed to have been attacked by the same officers.
The incident happened at Bombi in the outskirts of the Agricultural Development Cooperation’s (ADC) Kulalu Galana Ranch.
Speaking on arrival in Mombasa, Kenya Red Cross Society emergency ambulance driver, Mr Omar Said it took six hours to ferry the injured journalists and the two senior Tana River County officials from Galana ADC farm to Malindi Town.
He said he had to drive with a lot of caution owing to the rough terrain and the status of the injured people.
“It was also raining and the road was a bit slippery,” said Mr Said. – NATION
