Kenya: Internet governance still on the back-burner
Kenya has yet to fully address its legal, infrastructure, access, content and security issues. That's according to a report called "Online Deliberations on Internet Governance" released ahead of the up-coming global Internet Governance Forum (IGF) meeting in Hyderabad.
