Kenya IGF Online Discussions Day 1: Content Regulation on the Internet

Mercy,

KFCB Should ensure that any policy dealing with content is subjected to a
multistakeholder process and that all relevant stakeholders are identified
and encouraged to participate in the Policy developement process.
Stakeholders in the content space have been complaining about inadequate
consultations.

It is important for sector players to ensure that a multistakeholder
framework is in place as soon as possible. I would love to hear what media
practitioners, organozations that deal with child online protection amd
safety say.

Best Regards
