"The DAAD is shocked to learn that Kenyan author Binyavanga Wainaina, who is currently a DAAD scholarship holder of the Berlin Artists-in-Residence programme, has been assaulted in Berlin. We strongly condemn this attack and are ashamed that such incidents can occur in our streets. The DAAD believes in international dialogue, tolerance and a welcome culture."

Professor Dr. Margret Wintermantel
