- freedom from interference with his correspondence.
We shall also discuss:
- whether a Freedom of Information Act is necessary in our democracy;
- whether the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) is fulfilling its statutory role vis a vis radiobroadcasters;
- whether the 2018 amendments to section 46 of the Information & Communication Technologies Act 2001 are sufficiently clear and certain within the meaning of section 10(4) of the Constitution; and
- whether there is a need to censure expression on social media, as contemplated by the ICT Authority (ICTA)?
