A reporter from the Star newspaper was shocked yesterday when he was blocked from attending a press conference at the home of Cord leader Raila Odinga in Karen, Nairobi.
A policeman manning the gate informed the reporter that he had firm instructions not to allow anyone from the Star newspaper into the press conference.
“Let me do my job. I am under instructions that you stay out. Please allow other people to get in. You go out,” he said. Some family members were angered by a story published by the Star saying three licensed rifles, one licensed pistol and close to 20,000 bullets were found in the house of Fidel Odinga.
He died on Sunday morning.
