The suspects who leaked a video of President Kenyatta and Raila on June 2 , outside during curfew hours were charged on Wednesday for bleaching Cyber security rules.
The names of the suspects are Ms Janet Magoma Ayonga, a CCTV controller contracted at the hotel and Mr Patrick Rading Ambogo that is a security supervisor.
The footage of Uhuru and Raila outside during the curfew hours went viral and this stirred up uproar amongst the Jubilee supporter’s who accused president Uhuru Kenyatta for having double stand.
If the two suspects are found guilty they are likely to be jailed for a term not exceeding 5 years or fined 10 million Kenyan Shillings.
Part of the Kenyan Constitution indicates: “A person who intentionally and without authorisation does any act which intercepts or causes to be indirectly and causes the transmission of data to or from a computer system over a telecommunication system commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding ten million shillings or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years or both.”
However the lawyers Danston Omari and Apollo Mboya who were defending the suspects urged the president and the former prime Minister Raila Odinga to come out and explain whether they were the ones captured in the footage.
