NAIROBI — Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta plans to send back to parliament a media bill critics say would stunt democracy in an African nation with unusually broad press freedoms.

Critics said Kenyatta may have acted out of concern to avoid a confrontation with Kenya's popular and vibrant media and any backlash from the country's aid donors abroad.
