  • President Uhuru Kenyatta assented the controversial Computer Misuse and Cybercrimes Bill into Law.

    However, Kenyans across social media have expressed their one major concern that the Cybercrimes Law may mark the curtailing of the freedom of expression by the state.

    In their view, by giving consent to the controversial Bill, the Head of State had taken a step in the wrong direction in an era marked by digital progress.


    Although the law criminalizes abuse on the internet and social media platforms, a section of social media users were sceptical of the motive and the implementation.

    Others highlighted other issues that they believe should have been a priority including the corruption menace in the country.

    Another proposal was on the Head of State to assent The County Early Childhood Education Bill, 2014 that they feel would have greater impact for the country.
