DEATH THREATS to KTN’s MUHAMMED ALI and JOHN ALLAN NAMU …. SHOLLEI writes to KIMAIYO


Tuesday April 23, 2013 - Standard Group CEO, Sam Shollei, has written to the Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo regarding the alleged death threats to investigative journalists Muhammed Ali and John Allan Namu.

Shollei said the two journalists behind the Jicho Pevu Expose, have been receiving threats on their lives since they released an expose on the death of former Internal Security Minister Prof George Saitoti and his assistant Joshua Orwa Ojode.

“We believe these threats are aimed at intimidating and silencing our journalists and this media house from reporting on matters of public interest which is our duty as is enshrined in the constitutituion,” Shollei said in the letter.

“The Standard Group takes these threats seriously and would like to ask your office to investigate them and to take action,”he added

He also urged the police boss to assure the Standard Group that no harm will befall the journalists at the hands of law enforcement officers or any other person.

The two journalists ran an episode last week that showed a Government hand in the death of Saitoti and Ojode.

The two are currently living in safe house outside Nairobi to prevent them from being killed by state operatives.

  10. This is Kenya n from the past killings we've seen happening, we can't just trash the claims just because one of our own is the president. It is the presidency which has changed but the security operatives are still the same. So if we want to change this country let's give others to speak their feelings.

  11. Moha and Namu are national treasures that must be protected! Why do some people refusing to see the bigger picture here? Truth however bitter must be told. Truth does not rot. It always comes out even after 100 years!

  12. May the Good Lord protect you both as well as anyone else exposed to such danger...

  14. Aha! what a golden opportunity for these 2 to investigate and tell us,who wants to kill them! after all they are super investigative journalists.They seriously do no need the police to investigate the threat! , they can easily nab the culprits and hand them over to the police themselves and earn the title of Super cops to boot!

  15. GOD IS NEVER MOCKED THE TWO WILL FACE THE MUSIC IF THEY DONT STOP THEIR SHIT

  16. kwani what wrong hav they committed?? they just unravelled the truth so WHAT? LET THE CLEAN ONE B THE FIRST TO THROW THE STONE AT THEM!!

  17. Unbelievable. Ignorance coupled with mediocrity governs how a majority of people articulate issues on this space. Ali and Namu are in a class a majority of you cannot even comprehend let alone achieve..Not in this life time nor the next. STAY SAFE COMRADES.

  20. Don't worry! death is for real men like you! cowards die several times. But for moha& namu you are the solution to Kenya mysteries of unwarranted death.Next I want you to unravel the secret behind alshabab in Garissa an other parts of Kenya n Somalia. That one will peak your prudent investigations. In the short while let KTN hire private security for you. U can still negotiate with American govt to provide you with CIA for free!Kenyan security are damp they may never find u bcz ur smarter. They have failed to corner kabuga!
