Kenya ICT Practitioners Bill, Kill Technology innovation and creativity, of kenyan Freelancers and tech community
As a freelance software developer, I am frustrated by the Kenya ICT Practitioners bill which is a result of poor decision-making by our leaders, the bill only seeks to destroy Kenya's tech community and freelancers, as well as hinder Innovation in the country.
If we analyze a bill critically and rationally, the bill is absolutely useless and does not promote our technology in any way, its arguments are really weak and poor. This is the kind of bill you would expect from incompetent leaders who lack the basic capacity of reasoning.
I have never worked for any client or company that cared about my qualifications, all they ever wanted is to know if I can solve problems in their organization and add value to their business. In this field we succeed by thinking out of the box, working hard, researching, and learning as much as possible, it is a field that demands integrity, intelligence, and talent to solve real-world problems. Not by validation by any institution.
The community is pissed such that they cannot say anything because this how mad this bill is. I am so frustrated I have to put all my clients on hold as I am so anxious and disappointed.https://i.redd.it/f8b05lq2ff591.png
