That Kenyans are a very creative lot is without a doubt and our peculiar humour and habits seem to be scaling to new heights by day.
After the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) switched off the analogue signal for the country’s top three TV stations on Friday, KTN, NTV, Citizen and QTV, and the three media houses subsequently switching themselves off the digital platform, this virtually gave the country a media blackout for the last four days. Kenyans on tweeter (KOT) took it upon themselves to ensure that the country stayed informed with the latest news from yesterday under the hashtag #KotNewsAt9.
#KOTNEWSAT9 has been a trending topic since yesterday and the news are in the usual Kenyans hilarious approach to issues, so trust the content at your own risk.
Among the top hilarious news by KOTNEWSAT9 is the assertion that KBC’S slogan/tagline; Kenya’s Are watching, now makes sense because the country is literally watching the station, which together with K24 are the only local stations left on air.
TheMarketer @NgindaNganga: If you have noticed on #KotNewsAt9 no one killed anyone, no sad news, no lies, no sugar coating its the hard non depressing news.

It’s not clear, just how long the ‘media blackout’ will last, but it’s quite evident that #KotNewsAt9 has got Kenya covered at the tip of the hour.
