His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta has learnt with shock, the news of the plane crash this afternoon of Citizen TV and Radio Citizen journalists.
Just yesterday, President Kenyatta spoke to one of the journalists, Joseph Njane Gatete, in an interview at State House, Nairobi.
While the President is happy to hear that the journalists and pilot are recovering well in hospital, this incident reminds all of us of the dedication and hard work journalists put in to ensure that the messages in this electoral period reach all Kenyans.
The prayers of the President and his family are with them and he wishes them a quick recovery.
