Google Kenya – Our products and Services
We provide a variety of services for people and businesses. Here’s a glimpse at what we offer.
Google Kenya – What we do for you
Larry Page, our co-founder and CEO, once described the “perfect search engine” as something that “understands exactly what you mean and gives you back exactly what you want.” Since he spoke those words Google has grown to offer products beyond search, but the spirit of what he said remains. With all our technologies—from search to Chrome to Gmail—our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to find the information you need and get the things you need to do done.
This means making search smarter and faster, so it can understand that when you type [jaguar] you’re looking for the car, not photos of the animal. It means showing you when your friends like an ad or a search result, so that you know it might be valuable. It means making our products work intuitively, so that you can share documents with Gmail contacts without having to copy and paste, and open the same tabs on your Android phone that you have open on your Chrome browser on your desktop. Above all, it means making our products work better so that people can spend time on the stuff they’re good at—like enjoying time with family, camping in the wilderness, painting a picture or throwing a party. We’re not there yet, but we’re working on it.
Google Kenya – What we do for businesses
We provide a variety of tools to help businesses of all kinds succeed on and off the web. These programs form the backbone of our own business; they’ve also enabled entrepreneurs and publishers around the world to grow theirs. Our advertising programs, which range from simple text ads to rich media ads, help businesses find customers, and help publishers make money off of their content. We also provide cloud computing tools for businesses that save money and help organizations be more productive.
Google Kenya – What we do for the web
We build products that we hope will make the web better—and therefore your experience on the web better. With products like Chrome and Android, we want to make it simpler and faster for people to do what they want to online. We’re also committed to the open web, so we’re involved in various projects to make it easier for developers to contribute to the online ecosystem and move the web forward. And we work hard to create a web that’s better for the environment, by using resources efficiently and supporting renewable power. The web has evolved enormously since Google first appeared on the scene, but one thing that hasn’t changed is our belief in the endless possibilities of the Internet itself.

Google Kenya says can’t act on gay video ban
Source: Business Daily
American technology giant Google’s Kenyan office has said it has no authority to take down any flagged content on its website.
The response follows a demand by the Kenya Films Classification Board (KFCB) requiring Google to take down a gay music video from YouTube, saying it violated Kenya’s laws.
In a letter addressed to KFCB chief executive, Ezekiel Mutua, Google’s lawyer for sub-Saharan Africa Ife Osaga-Ondondo said the Kenyan unit does not administer services on YouTube hence lacks the capacity to control the content that is accessible through the channel.
The KFCB had flagged the video claiming it was inappropriate and in contravention of Kenya’s laws.
The video is still on YouTube.
“We are in receipt of your later dated February 22 regarding a request to take down a YouTube video titled Same Love on grounds of being inappropriate and in contravention of the Kenyan law.
“We, therefore, would like to request you to submit your legal request electronically via web or by contacting YouTube LLC/Google Inc. directly via postal mail, email or fax,” said Mr Osago-Ondondo.
He said YouTube LLC/Google Inc and Google Kenya Ltd are separate legal entities and that all requests directed to the addresses given in the legal document will be responded to in a timely manner.
However, Mr Osago-Ondondo did not mention how long it would take before the flagged content is brought down.
The board had given Google a week to comply, which has since long passed.

Mr Mutua said KFCB has already written another letter to YouTube LLC/Google Inc as advised by the firm’s lawyer and is awaiting a response.
He said the regulatory agency would consult with the Attorney General on the next course of action.
“Google took a while to respond but following what their lawyer said, conversation is in progress and we are giving them time for internal consultations,” said Mr Mutua.
“We have not reached the point of taking them to court for non-compliance but we are building a case that if we will be required to prosecute we will do so,” said Mr Mutua.
Mr Mutua says Kenya “is dealing with the war of ideologies and the negative influence of vulnerable groups against their moral values as required by law”.
He added that if a homosexual man applied for a job at KFCB they would be employed, “but if they kiss one another man in public they will be condemned”.
