GPRADIO – The Kenyan Media Bill


H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta signed into law the Kenya Information and Communication (Amendment) Bill.  The action baffled the fourth estate following the memorable yet cosy warm media breakfast at state house.

The media regulatory bodies in Kenya prior to the signing of the bill were unable to foresee the president’s move, the latter having fronted flawless camaraderie taming the media’s bark and consequently its bite.

So what is next for Kenyan media with such a bill in place? A very interesting turn of events may pan out.

In retrospect the late Comandante Hugo Chavez  was a subject to Venezuelan media ridicule throughout his whole tenure.  Irrespective of constant attacks from the media,the late Chavez embraced the fourth estate , even hosting his own show Aló Presidente -where he interacted with the public.  So what makes Kenya so special compared to Venezuela?

GPRadio_logoIn the first episode of our podcast we define and analyse the KICA bill, it’s cause and effects and even draw parallels with the South African secrecy bill.

Our guest today is none other than the ’07 CNN Multichoice award winner,former KTN reporter Boni Odinga.
