The Kenya Information and Communication (Amendment) Bill, 2019 – No. 61 of 2019 (Malulu Injendi Bill)


For ages, bar during the colonial period, we have never had the need to
register so as to have a common forum or for wazees to sit under a mnazi
and discuss the days affairs.

Why would we need to do so now?

Its 60yrs since we got our ‘Independence’ and it amazes me why anyone would
want us to go back to our colonial past!
