.@AmnestyKenya @thekhrc The government is determined to profit our data by hook or crook. HELB and @CUE_Kenya have made a deal with banks to require smart cards of university students that are also ATM and swipe cards. Biometric data will soon be part of the deal #hudumanamba
Enslaving university and college students to debt is a sweet deal for businesses because this is an educated population which is likely to earn a higher income. It also eases GoK surveillance of educated citizens @AmnestyKenya @thekhrc
The HELB smart card is government blackmail. Instead or providing education as a human right, GoK is making education conditional on people being entered into a database that companies have access to @thekhrc @AmnestyKenya #hudumanamba

1. It lacks transparency on which govt agencies have access to ones information.

2. It does not stipulate who will be allowed to access this information & for what purposes.

3. There is no citizens data protection law to ensure citizens data rights
4. No provision is made as to a citizen requesting to know who has their information or how this can be accessed.

5. Nothing prevents ones private information from being sold by the State to 3rd parties or worse provided to other states.

6. This law can be abused & will as is.
7. No offences are stipulated as to those who have access to this information & abuse it. It states ambiguously in general meaning anybody. There must be a distinction btwn users & providers of citizens data.

8. Citizens data protection law shld have been enacted 1st not last.

#HudumaBill2019 defines “birth” as "means the issuing forth from the mother after the expiration of the twenty-eighth week of pregnancy, whether alive or dead"

In other words, your kid gets recorded on the slave plantation manager's books for being alive #ResistHudumaNamba
Before #hudumanamba, I would have agreed with having one database with all of one's information. To save yourself the trouble of reproducing the same data at different places.

But wakenya, it is isphilosophically bad and fundmametally inhuman #HudumaBill2019 #ResistHudumaNamba
First, it is not our job to make GoK's work easier. It is the job of different agencies to liase with each other about what they are doing. But instead of that, they are branding HUMAN BEINGS with 666 at birth till death. #resisthudumanamba
