Why KTN Is The Only Station Covering Moi’s Lying-In-State

Sunday is day two of the viewing of late Mzee Moi’s body at Parliament buildings in Nairobi.

Many have noted that KTN is the only station exclusively showing the viewing despite there being lots of other media houses camping to air the same.

KTN is a subsidiary of Standard Media Group which is believed to be owned by the Moi family. Being a state funeral, the stations airing tend to maximize proceeds out of a massive viewership.

That is the advantage the Moi-owned station wants to take out of the funeral and make sure millions are flowing in.

Other stations are sourcing their footages from KTN the reason why KTN logo is inundating the screens.

The station will also be the only one accessing Moi’s Kabarak home where he will be laid to rest.

A multi-religion funeral service will be held on Tuesday at Nyayo Stadium where President Kenyatta will be leading the nation in bidding farewell to the late Mzee Moi.

Public viewing of the remains will end on Monday, February 10.
