President Uhuru and DP Ruto may face charges over launch of information portal

Barely a week after President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto launched an information portal to highlight their achievement in the past four years; they could be staring at a possible jail term.
This is according to a piece done by NTV which alleged that the move to launch the portal,, was in contravention of the law.
The portal contravenes section 14 of the Elections Offences Act. The act prescribes that a candidate or a referendum committee should not use any public resources for the sole intent to campaign for an election or referendum.
The Act has categorically stipulated that no government shall publish any achievements or advertisements of the respective government either on print or electronic media or by banners or hoardings in public places during an election period.
Former Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Chairman Apollo Mboya has since written to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Keriako Tobiko asking that the duo be charged within seven days for contravening the law.
He added that the country is already within an election period according to Section 2 of the Act so the charges have ground.
He warned that he would privately move to court to sue the duo should the DPP fail to heed to his request to have the two leaders charged.
But this seems to be elusive since the President has been cushioned from any criminal proceedings for the term he is in office.
The launch of the portal drew varied reaction from the public and political class with many arguing that Jubilee has not done much in the last four years.
