IPI condemns attack on press in Kenya p.

By: Editorial Staff SWITZERLAND-BASED International Press Institute says attacks on the press in Kenya have gone "from bad to worse" and the country's president Daniel arap Moi has declared war on press freedom.
"Some newspapers and magazines have exploited the freedom of expression which is provided for in . . . our constitution to publish stories that are certainly seditious and malicious under the guise of freedom of the press," IPI quoted the president as saying.
"The laws of our land are very clear on how to deal with such publications. These publications have become vehicles of suspicion and tribal animosity. The government will act in accordance with the law to protect national unity."
IPI reported that the country's media were subject to a campaign of threats, arrests, criminal charges and seizures last year and the situation has become worse this year.
