Kenya’s government is defying an order by the nation’s High Court to allow three of Kenya’s largest television channels to temporarily resume operations, after the stations were forced off the air for broadcasting footage of the symbolic inauguration of opposition candidate Raila Odinga. Odinga took second place in a presidential vote last year that was later overturned by courts, who cited mismanagement by the electoral commission. Odinga boycotted a revote in October, paving the way for an easy victory by incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta.
