It is not clear if any of the media houses has taken legal action.
However, the media attended a press briefing this afternoon where they
were informed that the stations would “remain off air until the
government has completed investigations into the “swearing-in” of
Opposition leader Raila Odinga.”

Has any media station gone to court on this?
Or are they perhaps pursuing ADR methods to resolve the issue?
