KFCB IS COMMITTED TO RESTORE SANITY IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT SECTOR, DR. MUTUA SAYS

KFCB CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, MBS led the Board officers today in staging the ongoing countrywide crackdown on PSVs exhibiting unrated content along the Karen-Ngong route in Nairobi where over 50 PSV operators were issued with the exhibition licenses in line with the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222. The operation to ensure matatus fitted with exhibition screens comply with the Films and Stage Plays Act is being conducted in collaboration with the National Police Service and is also meant to ensure that children are not exposed to adult or harmful media content. Speaking during the crackdown, Dr. Mutua reiterated that the Board is going to continue with the process as long as it takes until sanity is restored in the transport sector. The KFCB CEO applauded the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government for offering the Board immense support in the ongoing PSVs crackdown. “We must rid the country of the wanton impunity in this sector that defies order and decency and thrives in chaos. We cannot be proud of having rogue transport sector and yet entrust the lives of millions of our citizens with it,” Dr. Mutua said. The Board is using the crackdown on PSVs to sensitize operators on the classification guidelines that inform rating of content aimed at ensuring the PSVs licensed as film exhibitors understand the General Exhibition (GE) rating for compliance.
