Regulation & Policy In Brief

Regulation & Policy

- Kenya’s ODM believes the contentious Kenya Communications Act is part of a hidden agenda by some PNU hardliners to retain power in 2012. Three senior ODM Ministers told the Nairobi Star that the Act, which has shaken the stability of the Coalition government, was intended to put pressure on the media. FM and TV stations will have to be friendlier towards those in control of the Communication Commission of Kenya as they will operate under the fear of having their licenses withdrawn if they were deemed to be causing disaffection among the public.
