ICT Practitioner’s Bill To Destroy Innovation in Kenya

The launch of the recent ICT Practitioner’s Bill has created uproar among the tech community in Kenya. The bill states a number of nonsensical topics, such as how people in IT must be ‘practitioners’ legalized by the government to standardize ICT practice in Kenya. (Read about the problems with this bill here). The focus of the ICT ministry should be on improving the quality of tech education across the country, and not on limiting the genius and talents of Kenyans building tech (who might not have earned a degree in computer science). Needless to say, this bill is quashing innovation and technology as it is today in Kenya. Sign the petition to stop it from passing here.
