Suspects charged with posting CCTV footage of Uhuru, Raila freed on bail


A viral video of President Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga inspecting a deserted Kenyatta Avenue by night created a sensation when it hit social media.

That June 2 video has now landed two guards at Sarova Stanley Hotel in trouble.

Ms Janet Magoma Ayonga, a CCTV controller contracted at the hotel and Mr Patrick Rading Ambogo, a security supervisor, who are suspected of leaking the video captured by the hotel’s CCTV cameras were Wednesday charged with unauthorised interception of computer data under Section 17 (1) of the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crimes Act.

The suspects were employed by Fidelity Guards and Robinson Security who are New Stanley Hotel’s property security guards and CCTV operators respectively.

The two were accused of “jointly intentionally and without authorisation intercepted a security CCTV footage capturing the Head of State’s entourage along Kenyatta Avenue.”

The charge, on conviction, carries a fine of Sh10 million or a jail term of not more than five years or both.
