KFCB WARNS SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS AGAINST ADULT CONTENT

The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer Dr. Ezekiel Mutua has warned school bus operators against playing adult and dirty content while ferrying leaners to school. Addressing the press on Monday 10th February, 2020 while in Mombasa for the countrywide crackdown on public service vehicles (PSVs) exhibiting unrated content, the CEO reiterated the Board’s efforts to restore sanity in the transport sector. Dr. Mutua added that the content consumed by students in school buses and matatus has contributed to moral decadence among the youth in Kenya, sending a warning to PSV operators against exhibiting content that is a nuisance to passengers. Dr. Mutua further stated that the exhibition of dirty or pornographic content in PSVs shall not be tolerated as it is bound to corrupt our societal values and morals. “Parents should not have to endure the discomfort of viewing obscene content with their children. Matatus that have TV screens will now be required to pay KSh 2,000 to obtain licences and be issued with guidelines on the kind of content allowed,” said Dr. Mutua. The CEO applauded the PSV owners, Associations and members of the public and media for their support in the Board’s endeavor to bring back sanity to the public transport sector.
