Mr Sang announced the news of the launch of BBN TV on his Facebook page.

“I am delighted to announce that BBN TV is now on air in Nairobi on signet. God has enabled me together with Rev Christopher Arap Mutai and Prof Teddy Njoroge to come up with this Christian Television channel,” he wrote.

“We look forward to covering the whole country very soon. God is great.”

Mr Sang, a former journalist at Kass FM, had been indicted by the International Criminal Court for his alleged role in the 2007/08 post-election violence that left around 1,000 people dead and uprooted 500,000 from their homes.

He was indicted alongside Deputy President William Ruto and former ODM chairman Henry Kosgey. While Mr Kosgey’s case was not confirmed for full hearing, on 5 April 2016, the Trial Chamber V(A) decided, by majority that the case against Mr Ruto and Mr Sang should be terminated.
