KCA Act 2008: Take Two

So the Attorney General Amos Wako emerges from the shadows on the issue of the Kenya Communications Amendment Act 2008 to say that the document with comments from the media through the Media Owners Association, is now ready for discussion, with a meeting possibly late in the week.

Curiously, this seemed only to follow prompting from MOA and The Standard Group after they complained of the lopsided communication between them and the Government as they marked the anniversary of the infamous State-sanctioned raid.

So what can we expect to come of such a meeting? I dare say – not that much. Probably some sandbagging by Government since the effort is now losing political steam. The media will need to keep up the pressure to maintain this issue as front page headlines.

Of course with the Act, a couple of Clauses do need to be reexamined (my thoughts on what should be amended).
