A bodyguard attached to Education CS George Magoha’s bodyguard is alleged to have squeezed the genitals of NMG photojournalist Ondari Ogega and grabbed the buttocks of Viola Kosome of the People Daily. The incident took place at Kosawo Primary School, Kisumu County, while the journalists were jostling to have a vantage point to photograph Prof Magoha who was inspecting desks delivered to the school.
The security officer who seems to enjoy harassing journalist in this weird manner was also captured inserting his fingers into another reporter’s mouth, in order to prevent him from reaching near the CS in Vihiga.
An association of journalists has condemned the act terming it sexual harassment and now want action taken against the rogue officer. Kisumu Journalists Network (KJN) has claimed that the harassment is intended to create fear and but suppress freedom of the press.
KJN chairman Rushdie Oudia asked IG of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i to take action against the bodyguard whose identity was not immediately revealed.
