Dr Ezekiel Mutua, the CEO of Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) has banned listening to four radio stations in school vehicles for airing unrated content.

Mutua has directed school administrators to ensure drivers adhere to the ban and not switch on the said radio stations while driving school children.

The four stations banned are; Kiss FM, Ghetto Radio, Radio Jambo and Classic 105.

“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.

In addition, Mutua mentioned that Public Service Vehicles (PSV) operating along Mombasa Road, Thika Road, Lang’ata, and Magadi Road are notorious in exhibiting pornographic content.

According to Mutua, the display of pornographic content in matatus destroy the youth especially those still going to school hence affecting their education.

For instance, some leave home and fail to go to school, rather spend the whole day roaming in matatus.

“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,” Mutua said.

Yesterday, February 3, 2020, the KFCB CEO also announced a crackdown on PSVs, with a directive and regulations to be adhered to.

Through his twitter, he indicated that passengers go through agony while boarding matatus with loud music to an extent that one cannot pick a phone call.

He tweeted on Monday: “The stories of agony told by passengers in PSVs are very disturbing. The display, exhibition or playing of pornographic content, loud music and foul language used on passengers presents an image of a public transport sector gone rogue.”
