CNN goofs on Garissa terror attack story

cnn

 

International broadcaster CNN added another feather to its dubious reputation of inaccurate reporting of events in Africa when it announced to the world that Nairobi is located in Nigeria.

In its coverage of Thursday’s terrorist attack at Garissa University College, the broadcaster aired a live telephone conversation with Arnolda Shiundu of Kenya Red Cross from “Nairobi, Nigeria”.

And that’s not all. CNN had earlier announced – as breaking story –  that Garissa town is on the Kenya-Somalia border.

Garissa is actually located approximately 200 kilometers from the border.

The international broadcaster has been mired in frequent instances of misreporting in Kenya.
