Court gives go- ahead for digital migration
23 December 2013, 13:32
Nairobi - The High Court has granted the Communications Commision of Kenya CCK leeway to go on with the planned analogue-digital migration.
This is after a suit filed by three media houses seeking to have the process delayed and eventually re-thought was thrown out Monday.
Judge David Majanja made the ruling which now paves way for the government to execute the planned switch.
The three media houses Nation Media Group, Standard Group and Royal Media Services had filed the case arguing that the planned move was unconstitutional.
Majanja had earlier stopped the planned migration which had been set for Friday December 13 for ten days in-order for the case to be determined.
It thus means that the planned move by the government will take off as planned in Nairobi.
The media houses had argued in their plea that the government put up a strategic five year plan to ensure that the migration was smooth and give the public as well as stakeholders enough time to prepare for the move.
They said that if the move goes on as planned, they would incur huge losses to their businesses.
