Court Dismisses Bloggers’ Cybercrime Law Case

Court Dismisses Bloggers’ Cybercrime Law Case

Kenya Court Update |

High Court Judge James Makau has dismissed a case filed by the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) that challenged the constitutionality of the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act.

He issued the judgment Thursday morning, saying the petition was unwarranted and had lifted sections which had earlier been suspended by the court.

BAKE had moved to court to challenge the law about two years ago. The judgment was set to be delivered on January 30 but the matter was postponed to today by Justice Makau.
