Kenya’s digital migration policy fails the competition test

What you need to know:

  • One view that has been forcefully made by the spokespersons of the CA is that the licensed corporations that ceased broadcasting did so in fear of the competition that is heralded by the digital migration policy.
  • The CA curiously determined that only two content carriers would be registered, before winded litigation led to the decision to add a third content carrier.
  • Support for the CA reflects people’s personal politics, and the view that dominant media houses are receiving their just deserts from an Executive which they have been unthinking cheerleaders.

There is no greater demonstration of poor performance by a regulatory institution than when it oversees an unprecedented shutdown of a large portion of its industry.
