KENYA: Updates on current arrests and more to come


Ktn, Citizen Tv and NTV remain closed.

Plans are underway to shut social media platforms  for the next 72hrs in order to arrest Raila.

Plainclothes officers reportedly outside Nation Center, allegedly to arrest NTV's Linus Kaikai, Larry Madowo and Ken Mijungu for unclear reasons

Our friends and family in Kenya, please install VPN on all your phones to bypass the likely blocking of Social Media.

Activists who want to stay in touch with your people to keep informing them, please set up lists using Google so that you can send mass SMS messages to their phones.  This is what we did in Uganda in 2016.  We did not only get people to install VPN but we also set up lists to send mass SMS messages to their phone numbers.

<< Kenya Police: Mr. Miguna Miguna you are under arrest.

Miguna Miguna : Respect boundaries, go and arrest people from your country.>>

Below is what I wrote about the Uganda social media ban during the February 2016 elections.  I did not include the mass SMS messages but all you need is a Google account.  You put the list of phone numbers in an Excel (or CSV file) and use Publisher to broadcast messages with MERGE to the list of phone numbers.  Check on how this works using GOOGLE (of course).  Good luck.

Most of the country is still off social media and it has been hard for people to communicate with each other to instruct what to do.It was very simple to do.
The first message I got was at 2:00am AST (9am Uganda time).  “Leah, wake up, this is not a day for sleeping”.
The next message was “social media was cut off till after voting ends”.
Then “many polling stations have not received the ballot papers”.
In all this time one would be thinking, “I need to talk to some people to verify this information”.
Pick up the land line and call phone to phone and it is true, social media has gone to the dogs.
HOW THEY BROKE IT
Some phones in Uganda were still accessing social media (at least Facebook).  Some of you might know which phones they are.
Some people quickly found Apps to download to unblock themselves.
Some people used Phone to Phone texting.
Some called.  Do you have any idea how much it costs for someone in Uganda to call Canada.  However some friends called because information was not flowing.
Everyone who called me has been getting updates via Phone Text since I have unlimited international texting.
The real nerds are using VPN.
It looks like EC and UCC might need to shut off the IP address for Uganda completely in order to put through the gag order completely.  I bet some geeks will still find ways.
I hear UCC is thinking of shutting down Media Houses.  Great because I have previously written about how Print Media is going out of business.  Go ahead.  Shut them down.  Put people out of work and you will never recover from it.  If you read HuffingtonPost, you will know how media has moved away from a physical location.
