The Office of the Ombudsman is inviting comments on its Draft Access to Information (General) Regulations, 2021, which will regulate how government bodies respond to public requests for information.
The full draft regulations can be read here.
The comment period is open to all members of the public until 30th June 2021. Written submissions or comments should be forwarded to the Ombudsman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Okoa Mombasa encourages all members of the public to submit their comments. The coalition filed an Access to Information request in December 2019 seeking the release of agreements, contracts and other documents relating to the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR), but has not yet received a substantive response – over a year after the deadline passed.
