Waigumo,
Over 10 years ago, the porn addicted teen (son) of an activist got entangled with the police after defiling a minor. It was all hushed up (Children’s Act). Will Article 19 elaborate on when (or not) we should watch porno with our children.

Dear Colleagues,

Good morning.

ARTICLE 19 Eastern Africa (EA) published two opinion pieces as part of a ‘Gagging Free Speech’ series. This looks at the use of two problematic laws in Kenya, including the Computer Misuse and Cybercrimes Act, 2018 and the Kenya Films and Stage Plays Act (CAP 222).
