High Court to decide on Digital Migration case Friday

19 February 2015, 17:20 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court will decide on a case in which an activist wants the Communications Authority of Kenya CA to return analogue signal in the country Friday.

Activist Okiya Omtatah had Thursday morning lodged a case in court seeking to have the CA reinstate analogue signal, so that TV stations KTN, NTV, Citizen TV and QTV be allowed to broadcast on analogue signal until they get enough time to switch to digital TV.

Judge Weldon Korir however said that he would only respond to the case when the persons who have been mentioned in the case, the CA and the ICT Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i.

He asked the parties to appear in court Friday.

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.

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.
