The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (ODPC) on Tuesday fined Casa Vera Lounge, a popular joint located along Ngong Road Ksh 1.85 million over posting a reveler’s image on their social media platform without consent.

At the same time, ODPC fined Roma School mixed day & boarding primary school in Uthiru Ksh.4.55 million for posting a minor’s images without parental consent.

Also fined was Mulla Pride Ltd, a Digital Credit Provider which operates KeCredit and Faircash mobile lending Apps.

The company was fined Ksh 2,975,000 after being found culpable of using the names and contact information of complainants which were obtained from third parties and subsequently used to send threatening messages and phone calls.
