Supreme Court stops digital migration for 3 media houses

05 January 2015, 18:49 William Korir

Nairobi - The Supreme Court has stopped analogue- digital migration for 3 media houses and will convene a seven judge bench to seek a way forward on the unending saga.

The ruling was made Monday by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga who also ordered the full roster of Supreme Court judges to sit in on the newly convened hearing for the matter.

The migration within Nairobi and its environs was commissioned as planned by the Communications Authority CA on midnight 31 December 2014.

The three media houses though; Nation Media Group, Standard Group and the Royal Media Services have argued that they are not yet ready for the migration and that they need time to move forward.

The media houses say that they have invested billions of shillings in their current infrastructure and thus need time to ensure that it does not all go to waste.

The Supreme Court will thus convene as soon as possible to deal with the case.

The media houses say that they need two months to be granted to them to use both analogue and digital platforms so they can prepare for the switch adequately.

They also want more bandwith, saying that the ones handed to them at the moment are not enough.

The CA however, insists that it has no other choice than to go on with migration since the global deadline is in June 2015 and they have to conform.
