Activist sues CA, demands return of analogue signal

19 February 2015, 13:13 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - An activist has sued the Communications Authority of Kenya CA for mishandling digital migration and wants analogue signal to resume.

Activist Okiya Omtatah wants the CA directors and board members, as well as ICT Cabinet Secretary Fred Matian'gi to answer to charges of gross negligence.

Omtatah made the application Thursday morning.

On a notice of urgency, Omtatah wants the CA barred from locking out analogue signal as he claims most Kenyans cannot afford digital set top boxes.

He also says that Kenyans have been denied their right to information by the switch off.

The case is set to be mentioned Thursday afternoon.

Three major media houses, Nation Media Group, Standard Group and Royal Media Services are currently off air as they protest the analogue switch-off by the CA over the past weekend.

Their channels, KTN, NTV, Citizen TV and QTV have been operating on internet platforms the last week.
