Wednesday June 17, 2020 – Two Government officers who leaked CCTV footage showing President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader , Raila Odinga, touring Nairobi’s Central Business District are in trouble.
The two, Patrick Rading Ambogo and Janet Magoma Ayoga, were arrested on 5th June, 2020, and were charged today with unauthorised interception of computer data contrary to section 17(1) of the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crime Act.
The prosecution said that the two committed the crime on June 2nd about 8.20 am.
“On 2nd day of June 2, 2020, at around 2020 hrs at Nairobi county within the republic of Kenya jointly, jointly intentionally and without authorisation intercepted a security CCTV footage capturing the Head of State’s entourage along the Kenyatta Avenue,” read part of the charge sheet
Kenyans across the political divide have condemned the arrest saying it is a sign of dictatorship because the sharing of that particular footage doesn’t warrant their arrest and prosecution.
