President Barack Obama is expected to address a range of topics in Kenya today. The Kenyan government says it plans to discuss security and trade, while opposition parties and civil society want good governance and human rights added to the agenda, according to news reports. We hope the discussion includes the commitments to improve press freedom that the Kenyan government made to CPJ last weekhttps://cpj.org/blog/2015/07/mission-journal-will-obamas-visit-boost-hopes-for-.php.
