Festus Keyamo

Festus Keyamo(SAN), Minister of State for labour and unemployment has said that those criticising the Social Media Bill and the Hate Speech Bill can’t even differentiate between both.

According to the minister, no reasonable person will support death sentence for hate speech but some people have made it hard not to support it.

In a tweet on Monday morning, Keyamo said some people come online to say something that is very untrue and could possibly put other lives in danger yet no form of penal consequence.
