(NDIMA/IFEX) - On Friday 13 October 2000, a photographer working with the "Nation" newspaper was ejected from a function at Kenyatta University, on the outskirts of Nairobi, where President Moi was conferring doctorate degrees to graduates. Presidential guards also tried to snatch a camera from the journalist.
Govedi Asutsa was attempting to take a picture of President Moi conferring a doctorate degree to one of the graduates when presidential guards pounced on him. He was later frog-marched from the scene and security officers manning the gate were instructed not to allow him back into the graduation ceremony. Another photographer working for Citizen Television was also ejected.
