Telcos regulator seeks to monitor WhatsApp

@GG

Thanks for sharing. I’m curious as to what the world is coming to. Everyone wants to snoop and regulate. Can the CA tell us what’s the major value proposition to increasing snooping on us?

Regulators need to spend more time enabling the sector they are supposed to grow and the CA has really been progressive in many ways. Once in a while though they try to go back to the bad old KANU days. The onus is on us to remind them that Kenyans shut that door kitambo sana.
