President BARRACK OBAMA says Kenya is not safe for FOREIGN journalistsNews 15:06
Sunday, the 10th of March 2013 - US President Barack Obama on Saturday made a statement in a gala for journalists in Washington that appeared to suggest that Kenya is not a safe destination for foreign correspondents.
Obama prefixed the statement that compared Syria with Kenya by telling the journalist that, "the truth is our country needs you and our democracy needs you."
Syria is currently in the midst of a bloody civil war that was started on the pretext of removing its dictatorial ruler Assad from power. The conflict in Syria has killed more than 70,000 people.
Kenya meanwhile had its first peaceful election since 2007 this past week and the country is about to see the second peaceful handing over of power since 2002.
Obama did not explain why he coupled Kenya with Syria. The US President’s birth father was of Kenyan descent.
