He noted that the government has commenced investigations targeting certain individuals and Organizations who include but not limited to certain media houses.

Kenya's communications authority on Tuesday shut down television stations covering what the government calls an "illegal" and symbolic inauguration of opposition leader Raila Odinga. He has rejected Kenyatta's presidency as illegitimate. A key electoral official, Chris Msando, was killed a week before the August vote.

According to Irbard Ibrahim, the East African country has a record of political violence, hence the planned inauguration of Raila Odinga which has been banned by authorities is yet another recipe for chaos and a repeat of the violence that occurred in 2007 and 2008.

Claiming the poll would not be fair, Odinga boycotted the second vote and Kenyatta won with 98%. They said the numbers came from the government's electoral servers - an assertion the electoral commission has denied.

"A unilateral process of just switching off was not only a violation of media freedom, it was also a violation of fair administrative action, which is expected of any public officers, and runs afoul of Kenya's global and human rights obligations, where Kenya sits as a member of the UN Human Rights Council", said Mr Maina. But the Supreme Court annulled the results, saying there were voting irregularities and signs of fraud.

Since the August election, Kenyatta has taken a combative approach toward the news media, human rights groups and the judiciary, raising fears that he may usher in a more repressive era.

Many users on Twitter, presumably non supporters, complained to Twitter that Mr Odinga was impersonating the Kenyan head of state two which they received a standard response that the claims were being investigated.

That was why police had withdrawn from the venue, he said.

Streets are quiet in the central business district of Kenya's capital ahead of the opposition's plan to "swear in" its leader, Raila Odinga, as an alternative president despite the attorney general's warning that such an act challenging the official president will amount to treason. "For Kenyatta, continued pressure from Odinga and NASA supporters will push his administration to pursue policies that ensure its credibility and popularity", such as increased social spending and free secondary school education, Atwell explained.

The inauguration event in Uhuru park was attended by thousands of supporters, and went off peacefully. "We are suffering as Kenyans".

Mr Maina said the affected media houses should calculate the loss from the shutdown and sue the CA for compensation for the period that they were off air.
