EU defends freedom of media in Kenya
In the current situation in Kenya, it is important that all actors respect the Kenyan constitution and the rule of law, says the text of the statement of European External Action Service.
“This includes recognising the outcome of the elections and the re-election of President Kenyatta. It also means the respect of freedoms of assembly, media and speech and implies lifting any ban on media operating within the law.”
“Kenya’s election year is over, and the challenges laid bare by the electoral process will have to be addressed. All actors should contribute to calm. The Kenyan people now have the opportunity to take the country forward and work together on their historical path towards democracy and development.”
