After a high court judge ruled against a petition filed by Media owners association, top three broadcasters in Kenya went off-air leaving Kenyan’s with a message indicating the same. The petition which sort to have the period for digital migration in Nairobi extended for another five years was not granted by Judge David Majanja saying all the concerned parties were involved in the entire process and he had no reason to stall it. Among other arguments, the media owners had sort for a directive from the Judge on violations of intellectual properties as a result of Gotv rebroadcasting their content. In a surprise move, it was argued that even Startimes was insolvent and therefore not reliable. Justice David Majanja dismissed the allegations altogether saying they were unsubstantiated.
