BREAKING NEWS The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) has declared all films containing LGBTQ+ content illegal in Kenya. Section 165 of the Penal Code outlaws homosexuality, adding that any films or broadcast content appearing to legalize, advocate, normalize or glorify the act contravenes the laws and is, therefore, unacceptable as well as demeaning to Christianity as two gay men in the film purport to conduct a religious marriage invoking the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. According to Wambua, the film was produced with funding from several foreign organizations. He observed that while the Board welcomes local and foreign support local film industry, such funding should focus on production of content that is aligned with the laws, adding that international filmmakers must strictly adhere to the provisions of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap222 of the laws of Kenya by acquiring filming licenses as well as submitting their content for examination and classification for age suitability. https://bit.ly/3r6HuZC #LGBTQ

QUESTION OF THE DAY What has been your experience of Parental leave? Please do share your good, bad and or ugly experiences. KENYAN LAW According to section 29 of the Constitution of Kenya, female workers are entitled to fully paid three months’ maternity leave. Additionally, maternity leave does not take away the employee s entitlement to annual leave under section 28. Section 5(3) (a) of the constitution protects female employees from harassment and discrimination by the employee on the basis of being pregnant. The law also entitles a male employee to a two weeks paternity leaves with full pay. While many employees in private and government institutions get maternity benefits from their employers, a huge percentage of women especially in the informal sector do not enjoy these benefits as required by the constitution. Lastly, as an employee, get information about your rights to maternity leave and your employer s policies regarding the same. #ParentalLeave

The Code specifies the number of methods to combat Disinformation. The major social media platforms have apparently adopted it. I wonder whether some might think that some bits of the Fox News or CNN websites might sometimes be considered "Disinformation" as defined above.

https://digital-strategy.ec.europa.eu/en/library/2022-strengthened-code-practice-disinformation The Code (available at the link above) considers "Disinformation" to include misinformation, disinformation, information influence operations, and foreign interference in the information space. Each of those terms is defined as follows: Misinformation is false or misleading content shared without harmful intent though the effects can be still harmful, e.g. when people share false information with friends and family in good faith. Disinformation is false or misleading content that is spread with an intention to deceive or secure economic or political gain and which may cause public harm. Information influence operation refers to coordinated efforts by either domestic or foreign actors to influence a target audience using a range of deceptive means, including suppressing independent information sources in combination with disinformation. Foreign interference in the information space often carried out as part of a broader hybrid operation, can be understood as coercive and deceptive efforts to disrupt the free formation and expression of individuals’ political will by a foreign state actor or its agents.

Who was Queen Elizabeth II to Africa? Queen Elizabeth II has died at the age of 96. Her 70- year reign ran parallel with significant events in Africa. At the time of her coronation, she became the ruler of 14 territories across Africa, as part of the British Empire. And her decades on the throne were a period of immense change. One after another, each African country became independent and took their own path in the world. So, who was Queen Elizabeth to Africa? And what did her life and reign mean for the continent? #AfricaDaily https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0czcxnb

A New, Ground-breaking Collaborative Journalism Project Set to Tackle Mis & Dis – information in Kenya. In late 2021, Baraza Media Lab and twenty-three (23) media and media-related organisations met to discuss whether there was interest in taking collective action to combat mis/disinformation and mal-information aimed at confusing voters ahead of the Kenyan elections in 2022. Through these sessions, the collective concluded that there is a surge in a dedicated and sophisticated spike in mis/dis/mal – information attacks as well as a clear lack of training for media practitioners Launched in April 2022, Fumbua, which is a Swahili word meaning to unravel the truth, is a collaborative journalism project focused on discovering and investigating suspicious information about public policies in the upcoming general elections that have been shared on social media or messaging apps. #FumbuaKe #BML https://barazalab.com/programs/fumbua/

Azimio la Umoja Civil Rights Issues published: 2 months ago 0 . edited

My fellow Kenyans — As I have repeatedly said, I remain deeply committed to seeing our country evolve a government that is committed first and foremost to investing in the people. I remain deeply committed to overseeing a country that measures its well-being not by the GDP but by the impact of policies on real lives of real people at the household level-a society truly committed to uplifting the poor in its midst. That is why I disclosed last week that as we go around inviting Kenyans into our unity agenda under the Azimio la Umoja, our single focus is going to be how to ensure our people are fed, healthy, educated and safe before all other considerations, now, and well into the future. We are determined to ensure that our people have adequate food and that no child will be born into poverty again and be confined to poverty as has become the norm in this country. Not again. We believe the time has come for a government that spends on Kenyans not on itself. We believe the time has come for a government that spends on its people and not on expensive trips, per diems, mandazis in offices, inflated tenders and imprests that are never surrendered. The lax attitude towards public funds in this country has created a fertile environment for corruption and outright theft—stealing from the people. It has also created a perverse incentive structure where people join public service and not the private sector to get rich; where people’s riches or poverty are easily traceable to the duration in or out of office. This will have to end. As I declared a few days ago, I am looking forward to a government that shall embark on a direct cash transfer programme to the 2 million poorest households in the country going forward. This programme will reach about 8 million poor Kenyans a year given that the average size of a household across the country is four individuals. r-signature Raila Odinga October 13, 2021 #AzimioLaUmoja https://inawezekana2022.com/

    After the recent enactment of Companies Act 2015 and Insolvency Act 2015, various regulations and guidelines have been issued with a view to make the implementation of these acts easier and to resolve areas of conflict or uncertainty. A new Income Tax Act is expected to be introduced in 2018, amending the 1974 version and modernising the tax system. Amendments to the Banking Act 2015 (enacted through the Banking (Amendment) Act 2016), capped the rate of interest chargeable by banks, and has significantly tightened credit and liquidity in the country (particularly for the SME sector). According to a recent analysis by Cytonn Investments, access to credit in the private sector is at an eight-year low of 2.1% (in May 2017) compared to 25.8% at its peak in June 2014 (https://www.cytonn.com/topicals/topical-july-23-2017).

    Landlords usually exert unreasonable control over tenants with regards to payment of rent, increasing the rent, and evictions. The main reason is that the tenants do not know their rights. Ill also like to know something about tenant law.

  • KYR Legal
    11 months ago

    First, for a tenant who’s on a long-term registered lease, the lease terms will operate. A lease provides the lessee security of tenure for the entire period until the lease period is expired. For instance, if you were paying rent on a monthly basis, the Landlord should give a one month’s termination notice. Upon the lapse of the termination notice, the Tenant becomes a trespasser. The Landlord can apply to the Environment and Land Court for an eviction order. The Court of Appeal in Gusii Mwalimu Investment Co. Ltd & 2 others vs. Mwalimu Hotel Kisii Ltd, Civil Appeal No. 160 of 1995 applied by the High Court in Teresia Irungu vs. Jackton Ocharo & 2 others [2013] eKLR, held that: “It is trite law that unless the tenant consents or agrees to give up possession the landlord has to obtain an order of a competent court or a statutory tribunal (as appropriate) to obtain an order for possession.” 2. There are different types of eviction in Kenya: - a. Eviction of a Tenant at a residential unit; b. Eviction of a Tenant from business premises protected under Cap 301; and c. Eviction of unlawful/illegal settlers. By first knowing where you fall within these categories, then you’ll know how to defend your rights on the same.
