MOHAMMED ALI JICHO PEVU TO BE SCRAPPED BY GOVERNMENT

High Court judges; Isaac Lenaola, Mumbi Ngugi and Weldon Korir Ruling on friday has made the future of investigative journalism on balance including the favourite Jicho pevu by Mohammed Ali.  The judges validated the act that has been termed draconian by stakeholders in the media industry.The act fall on Kenya Information and Communication (Amendment) Act and Media Council Act.

The ruling now means that journalists will be fined up to Sh500,000 and media companies up to Sh20 Million if found guilty of breaching the code of conduct set by the government, as outlined in Article 19 of the amendment.

The new hefty fines were set to restrict media houses and journalists from reporting on critical matters that affect the government directly

“Journalists must be prepared to face the consequences, which are in accord with the law. In our view the provisions of 38(1)(f) of the Media Council Act and Sections 102 E (1)(f) and (h) of the Kenya Information Act are not in violation of the constitution,” said the judges.

This means that the government is in full control of the media something which stakeholder say it is taking Kenya back to the old dictatorial days.
