Crackdown on Indecent Content Shown in Matatus Continues

Kenya Film Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua on Monday, 10th February,  led a team of officers on sensitisation on immoral videos and licensing matatu operators at various booking offices in Mombasa County. 

Addressing the media at Bamburi, he said the operation was part of the countrywide crackdown on the public service vehicles fitted with screens showing explicit film content. 

“We will continue until we restore sanity to the public transport sector,” Mutua said. 

He noted that many PSVs display dirty content, which commuters had complained about to the KFCB, prompting the action.

The CEO called on those wishing to play videos in their vehicles to obtain licences at a fee of Ksh2, 000 a year, with KFCB guidelines.

Matatu owners and Saccos contravening the law risk jail terms not exceeding five years or fines of up to Ksh100,000 or both.

The General Exhibition (GE) rating by the KFCB is the appropriate content for public consumption, as it’s suitable for family viewing.
