Citizen TV’s Willis Raburu Reveals Witness 536 as Grace Nyakeru Githutha

In a rather surprisingly stupid move, a journalist with Citizen TV, Willis Raburu, went on Twitter and revealed the ID of the witness 536 who was testifying against some high profile Kenyans charged at the International Criminal Court. Willis Raburu revealed that witness 536 is Grace Nyakeru Githutha.

Though he later deleted the tweet and pretended to be tweeting only inspirational quotes, his action revealed the almost immature nature of most Kenyan journalist. They’d rather please powers that be and hope for handouts while completely putting aside the principles which guide journalists.

Revealing the ID of witnesses exposes the witnesses to great danger since those who they testify against are powerful (one is Deputy President) and have almost fanatical support in their ethnic support bases.
