Ezra Chiloba, Director General of the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA), has shut down a radio station after raiding its premises in Tena Estate, Nairobi.

The authority stated that it had shut down Gituamba FM, a Kikuyu vernacular radio station based at Puma Court within the estate.

CA stated in a statement released on Tuesday, December 7, that the station was operating illegally because its owner failed to obtain a license and other relevant documents.

“Gituamba FM has been broadcasting from a private residence. The station was broadcasting without a license from the Authority, which was a violation of the Kenya Information and Communications Act (KICA) “read a portion of the statement signed by Chiloba
