Members of parliament are defending themselves over the passage of the controversial Kenya Information and communications Bill, saying the bill is not out to curtail press freedom in Kenya. The MPs have also asked the president to sign the bill into law in its current state. MPs are also preparing to debate another media bill, the media council bill 2013 that if passed could create a conflict in the management of media matters in the country.
