DIGITAL MIGRATION: ITU DENIES DAILY NATION'S CLAIMS
The International Telecommunications Union has denied claims The Daily Nation newspaper that it has granted an extension of the June 2015 digital migration deadline for 30 African states.
Sanjay Acharia, the Chief Media Relations person at the ITU in an email to Dennis Itumbi of State House Nairobi said:
"There is no extension to the deadline for digital transition in the UHF bands for any of the 30 African countries which remains at 17 June 2015."
The Nation is the flagship brand of the Nation Media Group and enjoys the widest circulation in the country.
Critics of the paper point to the fact that the story was carried on the front page as proof that the media group is using its newspapers to misrepresent the facts.
