The team chaired by university don Prof Patricia Kameri-Mbote was tasked specifically develop policies and legislations that would operationalize article 34 and 35of the constitution. The Kenya Information and Communications (Amendment) Act 2013 and the Media Council of Kenya Act are some of the outcomes of the Task Force. Speaking when receiving the report, ICT Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred 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 2013. ‘‘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. Also in attendance was CIC chairman Charles Nyachae, CA chairman Ngene Gituku, the DG Francis Wangusi.
