Kenyan police fire teargas at demonstrators demanding TV stations reopen

Kenya’s NASA opposition alliance to protest as tensions escalate once more

"Once again the state is wilfully violating Mr. Miguna's rights by moving him without any notice to his lawyers or his family and, in order to frustrate their access to him, to a court stationed outside Nairobi", Isaac Okero, president of the Law Society of Kenya, told reporters.

Two Kenyan television channels shut down by the government over their coverage of the political opposition resumed partial broadcasting on Monday although a third channel remained off the air.

Raila Odinga was sworn in by the Kenyan opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) party last week as "people's president" in the capital Nairobi.

Hours before the event, the Kenyan communication authority cut signals of several television and radio channels including Citizen media, NTV and KTN who planned on covering the swearing-in.

According to Justice Kimaru, IG Joseph Boinett and DCI boss George Kinoti had committed an offence in contempt of court after disobeying an order to produce the controversial lawyer in court on Monday afternoon as earlier ordered.

It was unclear why the government switched back on the transmitters.

No one from the government was immediately available for comment.

Newcastle hold on to draw with Eagles
Yohan Cabaye, James McArthur and Zaha blazed over the bar when they should have done better as the hosts turned the screw. Karl Darlow bemoaned a "sloppy" few minutes from himself after Newcastle United were held to a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park.

"The powers to arrest given to police are being abused and misused to harass, intimidate, and oppress the applicants and to achieve ulterior motives".

Odinga's symbolic inauguration last Tuesday in the heart of the capital of East Africa's wealthiest economy was intended as a direct challenge to Kenyatta. Odinga insists he, not Kenyatta, was the true victor of a disputed presidential election last August.

Kenyatta won the August election, and won the repeat election in October as well after Odinga boycotted it, complaining it would not be fair.

Since the symbolic inauguration, Odinga and his supporters have repeatedly promised to outline their next step, only to postpone the unveiling of their plan.

In the past few days, the government has also briefly detained three opposition politicians, who took part in Odinga's ceremony.

Separately, a court ordered police to halt attempts to arrest at least three Nation Media Group journalists. A police spokesman said he was not aware of his detention.
