The outspoken MP had donned a lawyer's robe and wig, to the amusement of thousands of cheering opposition supporters in Uhuru park, in the capital Nairobi. Kenya's Supreme Court nullified the August election after Odinga claimed that hackers infiltrated the electoral commission's computer system and changed results in favor of Kenyatta.

The president won the rerun, but only after Mr Odinga boycotted the vote, claiming that a failure to institute reforms made the second election no fairer than the first.

No official explanation was provided as to why the media outlets were being prevented from covering Odinga's "inauguration" as the National Super Alliance (NASA) opposition coalition forged ahead with its campaign of defiance against incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta's ruling Jubilee Party.

Matiangi on Tuesday denounced the opposition's National Resistance Movement wing, tasked with implementing a threatened program of boycotts and civil disobedience, as an "organized criminal group".

Police Spokesman Charles Owino Owino confirmed that a stun grenade was hurled at Musyoka's home in the leafy Karen suburbs and two shots fired from a rifle.

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. Indeed it basically confirms that we have descended to the level of Uganda where in the last general elections all TV stations were shut off including also the social media network.

Odinga's supporters crowded the streets, effectively shutting down traffic in the center of one of Africa's largest cities. "We have come with Bibles ready to swear in our president, Raila Odinga, today", he said.

Though the police had said they would prohibit any illegal assemblies on Tuesday, there were no uniformed police in the park and no anti-riot officers or vehicles.

During a speech lasting less than five minutes, Odinga declined to give details of his plans and said they would be disclosed in "due course".

"Odinga voluntarily withdrew from the election, which election did he win that he is declaring himself president?"

Wachira Waruru, the managing director of Royal Media Services, which owns Citizen TV, said they are actively engaging the relevant government authorities to establish the reason for the action and hope to resume normal transmission soon.
