Amnesty International Kenya is raising red flags about Kenya's proposed national closed-circuit TV surveillance plan, Capital FM News reports. While the government seeks to govern all facets of the public surveillance, the human rights organization believes such control should be regulated through new data protection legislation geared toward citizens' rights. “Amnesty recommends that the government prioritizes establishing strong data protection legislation that protects human rights over expanding the collection of CCTV data nationwide and granting government agencies extensive access to privately-owned CCTV equipment. Amnesty understands that the National Assembly has called for consultations on the proposed Data Protection Bill, and we will submit a separate response to this proposed legislation,” the organization said.
