Ezekiel Mutua bans four radio station
The CEO of Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Dr Ezekiel Mutua has banned four local radio stations from being aired in School Vehicles.
Mr. Mutua while issuing the directive said that Kiss FM, Classic 105, Radio Jambo and Ghetto Radio have been airing adult discussions during their morning shows.
“We wish to inform the school administrator and parents that according to our broadcasting and monitoring unit, most radio stations are notorious for adult discussions in the morning,” Dr Mutua said.
The moral police appealed to school administrators to ensure their drivers do not turn on the said radio stations in their school buses, otherwise they will be arrested.
Mutua has also taken the Public Service Vehicle head on against exposing children to content that he termed as “pure pornography.”
“Every content aired in PSVs has to be rated General Exhibition (GE)…not showcase nudity or obscenity. From tomorrow all corners of the country will have police in place to crackdown the uncomplying vehicles,” he said on Monday.
The KFCB boss, has insisted that all PSV’s must comply with the Boards regulations or pull down screens in their vehicles.
Matatus with screens will be subjected to classification guidelines to ensure that the content exhibited is suitable for family viewing or listening.
