Kenyan Court ‘declares phone tapping illegal’

A Kenyan court has declared that plans by the government to tap private phone conversations is illegal, the Daily Nation reports.

The Communication Authority (CA) and the government wanted three telecommunications networks to “tap computers on their behalf by planting spy gadgets on all networks”.

But Justice John Mativo has declared the plan “illegal and violation of consumer rights”.

He ruled that the move was adopted in a manner “inconsistent with the constitution”, saying there was inadequate public participation prior to adoption and implementation of the system.
