Ezekiel Mutua Impounds Zero Matatus In Crackdown Against Dirty Music
Kenya Film Classification Board in partnership with police officers yesterday failed to impound matatus playing dirty content during its day long crackdown.
KFCB CEO Ezekiel Mutua and his officers had started the crackdown exercise with matatus plying the Lang’ata Road route all the way to Kiserian.
The officers who were draped in reflector jackets branded KFCB were accompanied by police officers and could be seen flagging off matatus along Lang’ata Road during the crackdown.
“We had 100% compliance as all the vehicles we stopped for the checks complied on the spot and we didn’t have to impound any,” said Mutua in a tweet.
Mutua however stated that despite not impounding any matatus, they managed to recruit clean content ambassadors from the conductors, drivers and the police.
“We provided the classification guidelines on the kind of content to be aired in PSVs. Those licensed must observe the GE rating in the content exhibition. Any contravention will lead to prosecution,” he said.
