KPFT members have heard the surprising and unpleasant news about the firing of Dr. Obidike Kamau, the interim General Manager for KPFT. The details of this sudden decision or rationale behind it is not clear to us; however, this action has already caused much confusion and division among the KPFT community and beyond. Therefore, we simply demand from Pacifica National Board and interim Executive Director to retract and halt this and any further firing until within a reasonable time a complete investigation is made. We hope PNB honors our by-laws and the democratic ways of our unique radio station in Houston. In these difficult times, we need unity to protect KPFT more than ever.
