Although the world celebrated freedom of the press at the weekend, many African governments cast a baleful eye on journalists. Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta cautioned that press freedom is not absolute, urging reporters to be more responsible. In Zambia, Labour Minister Fackson Shamenda warned that the government is considering arresting reporters who harbour political motives. And in Somalia, journalists remain targets in what is the most dangerous country for reporters in Africa. The Secretary General of the National Union of Somali Journalists, Omar Faruk Osman, says death threats come with the job.
