Eight Kenyan political and tabloid blogger sites and their handlers are today reported to be at risk of closure, prosecution and fines for spreading hate-speech including wikileakskenya and dennisitumbi.com both of which are run by Dennis Itumbi; and TheDaily Post run by Evans Gor Semelango.
The Daily Post has recently run propaganda and defamatory reports on Fidel Castro Odinga and is reputed to run hogwash on political personalities.
Sources intimate that Gor Semelango has already been served lawsuit papers by Fidel Odinga lawyers, and it is unconfirmed if Dennis Itumbi has also been served although sources say his blogs are redflagged and earmarked for closure.
The National Steering Committee on media Monitoring has expressed concern over the growing misuse of the Internet to propagate hate filled and inciting massages. At least eight blogging sites have been identified as being responsible for spreading hate speech.
