Draconian CCK Bill Gives Authority Power To Decide What Gets Covered
The closer election day gets, the more I think that there is somebody within the president's campaign team deliberately doing everything to reduce the chances of the president being re-elected for a second term.
One of the favorite tools this traitor is using is provoking the media.
I say this because even as the President keeps everybody in suspense over the Media Bill that remains unsigned, yet another bill that will affect the operation of the media in Kenya is due for discussion in parliament soon.
I am convinced that the reason why Kenyans have been left hanging over the fate of the Media bill, which has already been passed by parliament is because powerful forces around the president are still pushing hard for him to sign it into law. Chances are high that he will do just that.
Significant proposals in the new proposed law soon to be tabled in the house include a clause that allows the minister in charge of internal security to raid any media house and to take away equipment. Most Kenyans have failed to see the government's position concerning the infamous raid on Standard newspapers where newspapers were set on fire.
