Council of Kenya Act are some of the outcomes of the Task Force.

Matiang’i said much ground has been covered in supporting the ICT sector
including the enactment of the National ICT Master Plan, the National
Broadband Strategy, the National Cyber Security Master Plan and the
National Cyber Security Framework, recently  launched by President Uhuru
Kenyatta at the CA Centre.

Dr. Matiang’i also revealed that discussions are on-going with players in
the media sector to find ways of addressing challenges facing the sector.

Three media houses have gone to court to challenge the digital migration
and the constitutionality of the Kenya Information and Communications Act

‘‘An impression of instability and inconsistency is being created in this
sector. The challenges of transition, require that we engage in constant
discussion mindful of the fact that if we don’t and we continuously spend
our time in conflict, we will destroy the sector in the long run,’’
stressed Dr. Matiang’i.

Attorney General Prof. Githu Muigai said the Government is committed to
freedom of the media and as such, the Freedom of Information Bill and the
Data Protection Bill will soon be presented to cabinet for consideration.
