COFEK has protested against the planned mobile phone tracking by the government.
This was after Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) announced plans to tap into mobile phone conversations from next week.
The Authority will do this by fixing ‘black boxes’ on all routers of Safaricom, Airtel and Orange Telkom.
This will help the service providers to share all data that passes through their networks, including calls, text messages and mobile banking data.
According to The Standard, the government will also be able to know where you are and for how long.
Nairobian adds that CAK has already written to the network providers asking for permission to install the tapping gadgets next week, and has also sub-contracted M/S Broadband Communications Network Ltd to help with the process.
Consumers Federation of Kenya (COFEK) has protested this move, saying it is an infringement on the privacy of Kenyans.
