Stalking and eavesdropping made easier

The internet, that's what did it: email, twitter, Facebook, etc. And in Kenya that privacy rights are virtually non-existant, it makes for very easy prey. Syzygy Mandaea :

Privacy rights are not the rave in Kenya, the paradigm ‘if you’ve nothing to hide you will not mind intrusion’ seems to hold sway here, and the human rights groups remain detained in a 1980s mindset where the primary infringement on one’s rights derives from state action intended to stifle dissent.
