In a statement seen by Pulselive.co.ke, the Senator told the government to obey a court order by High Court judge Justice Chacha Mwita ordering it to restore the signals of Citizen TV, NTV and KTN.

Mr Moi, who is also the chairman of the Senate Committee on Information and Communication Technology, faulted the move by the government to switch off the stations, saying media freedom is enshrined in the Constitution, which State swore to abide by and protect.
