Today, I've seen an article in @StandardKenya that says that @MatiangiFred will have powers to snoop on Kenyans' phones if he suspects them to "work for foreign powers" without a warrant if the #StatuteLaw2020 pass.

I'm reading the bill myself & found interesting things
To read the #StatuteLaw2020 effectively, I have @kenyalaw open so that I can read the laws that are being amended. I highly recommend that you take time and do this also. NOTE: I'm not a lawyer, so I likely have gaps in my knowledge but I hope #KOT lawyers like @Olez will help.
What #StatuteLaw2020 actually says is here. It gives CS @FredMatiangi the power to order you to give him access your phone/ laptop & ALSO your email and DMs. He only needs to decide that it is in public interest and he does not need to justify what that means. No checks kabisa.
A danger of #StatuteLaw2020 is that it could inadvertently make you incriminate yourself - and you have a right not to give evidence that can be used against you. But the CS, thinking you are a spy could find evidence that you are cheating on your taxes. nothing stops him
1/ CAP 75. "Delete S.184"

I read that if a court does not convict a person of rape, but instead find that he is guilty of sexual harassment, the court can't convict him, if he was not charged. Essentially, that person goes free on a technicality #StatuteLaw2020
2/ CAP 75. "Delete S. 186"

Same technicality for the defilement of a girl under the age of 14. If a judge found the defendant not guilty of defilement, but guilty of attempted defilement per the Sexual Offences act, the person is free regardless #StatuteLaw2020
