Kenya: TV Stations Still Blocked - Despite Court Ruling To The Contrary

Further to our report on Tuesday 30th January that the government of Kenya has blocked some TV stations from broadcasting in protest to their planned coverage and broadcast of a mock presidential "inauguration" of opposition leader Raila Odinga, it seems that blockade is still in firmly in place, despite the ruling of a competent court.

A court in Kenya has issued an injunction that suspended the government broadcast ban on KTN, Citizen TV and NTV for 14 days while the case brought by the broadcasters is heard in court.

Kenyan Interior Minister has said that the government is looking into the implications of the court action and will act in the interest of the nation.
