No more ‘bend over’ videos and loud music in PSV’s as KFCB kicks off a countrywide crackdown on matatus airing explicit content.
The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) has launched a countrywide crackdown on PSVs playing pornographic content.
CEO Dr Ezekiel Mutua on Thursday morning addressed the media in Mombasa and provided an update on the crackdown, the licenses required for exhibition of content in public places including PSVs and the penalties for violation of the law.
“The Board is committed to bring sanity in the public service transport sector and ensure children are not exposed to inappropriate content,” he said.
He warned that penalties for playing unlicensed exhibition of content in Public Service Vehicles is Sh200,000 or 5 years imprisonment.
“We are mounting a crackdown on all public service vehicles screening such content against the law.
PSVs are not broadcasters. Turning the vehicles into cinema theatres or video shows and airing pornographic content is punishable by law.
We are committed to bring this madness to an end,” warned Mutua.
He indicated that close to 80 PSVs had been detained in Bamburi and Central police stations in Mombasa over playing loud music and screening of pornographic content.
