#‎OromoProtests‬ Bilise Kenea a journalist with Oromia Television and Radio has been fired. On January 9, 2016 Bilise came to work as usual but she was turned back at the gate. While management has not given her explanation or formal letter of termination, her colleagues believe it is connected to what happened earlier that week. There was a meeting of journalists, management and government officials to discuss how to produce effective propaganda to counter #OromoProtests. In that meeting Bilise reportedly explained to them how hard to it is to lie to the public when they know every thing and also asked them to explain why her coligue Fikadu Mirkana was arrested. ‪#‎CPJ‬
