“Nakwambia upuzi ambaye iko kenya ni mingi sana” he struggled to remark amidst his own giggles.
The president clarified that the government was not up to anything of the sort and would make arrangements for every Kenya to have a copy of the all information about themselves as well as protect the same data from unauthorised access.
