The CEO of Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Dr Ezekiel Mutua has banned the listening of four local radio stations in school vehicles saying they air adult discussions in their morning shows.
The four local stations which Dr Mutua listed are Kiss FM, Classic 105, Radio Jambo and Ghetto Radio.
“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.
Dr Mutua pointed out PSVs plying Ngong Road, Mombasa Road, Lang’ata, Thika Road and Magadi Road saying they are the most notorious in terms of exhibiting “pure pornography” content.
“Some matatus have become cinema theatres for offensive content and are destroying the youth, especially students. Some students leave home and roam around in these vehicles the whole day. We cannot have a section of society that completely disobeys the law daily and gets away with it. The number of road carnage caused by reckless driving is mainly as a result of indiscipline and impunity by the PSVs operators,” he said.
