African Broadcasting & Media Vibes: Kenya's Media Freedoms Under Threat

Kenyan legislators are attempting to push a controversial new law through parliament, which would allow Kenya's information minister to raid and close broadcasters.

Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Nairobi, where dozens of journalists have already been detained by the police for protesting against the proposed law.
