The three tv stations namely NTV,KTN and Citizen tv were switched off ahead of Raila’s “swearing in ceremony”

NTV owned by Nation Media Group was the first to go off followed by Citizen of Royal Media Services Limited before KTN of Standard Media following suit two hours later.

In a statement,Citizen tv confirmed that the Communication Authority has switched off its ADN signals at the Limuru station thus disabling all transmission.

NTV reported that its free to air signals were switched off but its signals were available on DSTv and digital platforms.Radio stations in parts of the country were also affected.

Meanwhile residents of Mombasa,Kisii and Nyamira were angered with the move as some who could not travel to Uhuru Park expected to watch it live on TV.
