Nation Media Group reported on Friday (17 Nov) of orders from the sector regulator, Communication Authority (CA), to desist from broadcasting live political activities.
One does not need sophisticated analysis to see how it coincided with NASA’’s planned reception of Raila Odinga back into the country.
This would have extended to online platforms as well, since most of these media companies livestream online, especially YouTube and Facebook.
Nation Media ignored the order since it did not provide any legal provisions to justify its execution.
I think this is the kind of pushback intermediaries should be engaging in when censorship orders are made.
