The international hacker group and activist collective, Anonymous, has issued a stern warning to the Kenyan Members of Parliament over the proposed Finance Bill 2024.

In a message shared on their official X account, Anonymous stated that they have become aware of discussions in parliament to pass a bill that will “unfairly tax the citizens of Kenya.” The group expressed concern over the peaceful demonstrations by Kenyans against the bill being met with “harassment and arrests from the police.”

Anonymous went on to caution the legislators that with the phone numbers of some MPs circulating online, their “secrets may soon be made public.” The group declared, “Your secrets may no longer be safe, and there is a chance that all these secrets will be exposed.”

The message from Anonymous was clear – they do not want the Finance Bill to be amended, but rather rejected entirely. They urged the MPs to “listen to the cries of your citizens, or the people of the world will resist you every step of the way.”

The warning from Anonymous came just a day before the planned “Occupy Parliament” protest scheduled for June 20th. The group expressed solidarity with the Kenyan citizens, stating, “Citizens of Kenya, do not worry, Tuko Pamoja.”

The office of the Data Protection Commissioner in Kenya also issued a warning on Wednesday, advising Kenyans against sharing personal information of others publicly without consent. The Commissioner stated that this practice contravenes the Constitution and data protection regulations in the country.

As the standoff between the government and the people continues, all eyes will be on the Kenyan Parliament as they decide the fate of the controversial Finance Bill 2024.
