Raila Odinga declared himself the “people’s president” in Nairobi on Tuesday

Kenya’s High Court has suspended the government’s shutdown of three of the largest private TV channels.

They were taken off-air over plans to broadcast opposition leader Raila Odinga’s unofficial “inauguration” on Tuesday.

The court has suspended the ban for 14 days while the case is heard.

Mr Odinga lost last year’s election and his swearing-in was widely seen as a publicity stunt, but the authorities said it was an act of treason.

Opposition groups have accused the Kenyan government of violating the public’s right to information about important events.
