The killing of top journalist and anchorperson Arshad Sharif outside of Nairobi, Kenya, was highlighted by the United States on Tuesday and demanded that Kenya conduct an open investigation. Senior journalist Arshad Sharif, who left the country after being accused of sedition, was shot and killed in Nairobi, Kenya, according to reports that he was shot, his widow confirmed early on Monday. According to the Kenyan police, Sharif was shot and killed Sunday night in the Magadi neighborhood after his car allegedly crashed through a police barricade. “We encourage a full investigation by the government of Kenya into his death. “It’s not entirely clear that we know all the circumstances at this point regarding what led to his death, but we do urge a full investigation,” said Ned Price, US State Department Spokesperson, while offering condolences to the family of Sharif. While talking about Arshad Sharif, Price said, “And it’s clear through his work that Arshad Sharif was dedicated to that fundamental right of freedom of expression—that took him around the world. His work was known around the world. Price stated that it was difficult for him to be more specific about what we could do for a specific person, but we do have programs in place around the world that are aimed at enhancing protection for people who are exercising another universal right, the right to freedom of expression and the right to information.
