JAIL AWAITS SOCIAL MEDIA ABUSERS

By Chris Ojow

Writings on the wall, from now those characters

addicted to insulting people, harrasing, posting

unverified materials, inciting the public, hacking

systems and sharing fake informations your

days are numbered.

Any Kenyan found with the offence listed above

is liable to cybercrime offence which was given

a green light by High Court Judge, Justice

James Makau after dismissing a petition filed

by Bloggers Association of Kenya.

The Association filed the application before a

Constitutional Court at Milimani Nairobi County

seeking the Court to quash defamatory

provisions in the Cybercrime Bill.

The applicants further stressed in their several

prayers, that the cybercrime bill threatens the

freedom of expression in line with the

Constitution of Kenya.

Offenders will be sentenced to ten years

imprisonment or pay a fine of twenty million

Kenya shillings huge amount of money or both.

Time for wrekles, unreasonable, unresponsible,

mannaless and abusive social media users to

refrain, change their attitudes is now or they

risk messing up their precious future.
