NIS seeks access to your SMS messages
22 July 2014, 17:22
Nairobi - The National Intelligence Service (NIS) is seeking to have the privacy clause deleted from the Constitution which will allow them access to text messages.
The Standard reports that the new proposed Bill seeks to grant NIS unlimited access to all text messages send within the country.
Currently, Section 42 of the Constitution grants the spy agency powers to access email messages of people suspected of crimes such as money laundering, terrorism, corruption and drug trafficking.
However, this happens only after the NIS have received a warrant from High Court.
