Kenya TV stations resume operations

Two of the three private television stations in Kenya on Monday resumed operations after being shut down by the government for seven days.

NTV, KTN News TV stations are back on air but Citizen TV signal is yet to be reinstated.

The signals are back on air on pay TV carriers Dstv, GOtv and Zuku.

The Nation Media Group’s NTV, Royal Media’s Citizen, and Standard Group’s KTN News were switched off mid-morning Tuesday for airing live footage of the opposition leader Raila Odinga ‘swearing-in’ as the ‘people’s president.

The media blackout was condemned by the United Nations, the US, European Union and human rights organisations.

International media stations from around the globe on Monday highlighted the government’s defiance to keep the stations off-air, despite a court order to restore broadcast.
