I've been watching KTN (Kenya Television Network) on 39E, but it disappeared at the beginning of March. Does anyone know if this was a scheduled turn off, or if it happened suddenly?

Reason I ask is that the Kenyan Secret Police raided the TV stations and Newspapers at around the same time. It has been suggested that this was to suppress some information implicating a certain high-ranking government official in corruption.

I'm just curious as to whether the disappearance of KTN from HellasSat is linked to this or a coincidence. I have family in Kenya, so naturally I have concerns about the situation there.

Unfortunately I have heard nothing concerning this channel, what you fear may well be the case. I gather that there is an impending food crisis in that and neighbouring countries, perhaps more will come to light as the countries come to the foreground of the news.
