The Kenyan High Court has dismissed a petition by three media houses – the Standard Group, Nation Media Group and Royal Media Services – against the immediate digital migration.
The full statement from the media houses is reprinted here below;
“In the High Court sitting in Nairobi on the 23rd December 2013, Justice David Majanja dismissed a petition by three media houses- Standard Group, Nation Media Group and Royal Media Services – to have the digital migration postponed until certain critical issues spelt out in the petition are resolved. He dismissed the case and as a consequence digital migration takes effect immediately. In compliance with the judgment we are left with no option but to go off-air. We have instructed our lawyers to appeal against the High Court decision in the Court of Appeal.
At the same time we are pursuing other avenues to resolve the issues so that you can continue watching your favourite television station.
We hope to be back as soon as possible.”
It is unclear at this point on what date digital migration will take place. Follow HumanIPO for the latest.
