The Press as the fourth estate of the realm must be allowed to discharge the role given to it by our Constitution. We call on the law enforcement agencies to bring the perpertrators of the attacks on ThisDay to book and with the urgency that it deserves, as well.

“Though details are still sketchy; but we solidarise and empathise with  the publishers of ThisDay and commiserate with those who may have been injured or killed in the attacks.
