Twelve years ago, on 16 December 2004, Deyda Hydara, co-founder of The Point was gunned down by beasts with human masks.

Deyda has gone, but he shall never be forgotten. He shall always be in our hearts and minds.

He died standing up for freedom of the media, and his death marks an important day in our calendar; a day in which a defender of media freedom was martyred.

Sam Sarr, editor-in-chief of Foroyaa
