Three main television stations in Kenya were Tuesday switched off after ailing live footage as the opposition prepared to swear-in Raila Odinga as the “people’s president”.

The Nation Media Group’s NTV, Royal Media’s Citizen, and Standard Group’s KTN went off air mid-morning while showing live broadcasts of National Super Alliance (Nasa) supporters who had gathered at the historic Uhuru Park from as early as 5am.

The Kenyan government had on Monday been reported to have warned the media against airing Mr Odinga’s oath taking.
