Two Kenyan TV channels silenced for the past week

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Kenyan government to stop trying to restrict media freedom and to lift the suspension of two TV channels that have been unable to broadcast for the past seven days despite a court ruling in their favour.

Citizen TV, a commercial channel, and Inooro TV, a community station, were taken off the air on 31 January for defying a ban on covering opposition leader Raila Odinga’s mock inauguration as president.
