President Uhuru Kenyatta has formally signed the 2018 Cyber Crime Bill into law. The President put his signature into the bill which will be used against bloggers and journalists.

The bill,which is now law,states:

    persons, wilfully and repeatedly communicates, either
    directly or indirectly, with another person or anyone known
    to that person, commits an offence, if they know or ought
    to know that their conduct—
    (a) is likely to cause those persons apprehension or
    fear of violence to them or damage or loss on that
    persons’ property; or
    (b) detrimentally affects that person.

A person who commits an offence under
subsection (1) is liable, on conviction, to a fine not
exceeding twenty million shillings or to imprisonment for a
