Govt bans daytime sex talk-shows

08 January 2016, 09:35

Nairobi - The Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) has banned daytime sex talk-shows on radio and TV as contained in the Programming Code for Free-to-Air Radio and Television Services in Kenya.

According to the Authority, interactive call-ins or discussion content that is not suitable for children will not be allowed between 5am and 10pm unless it is part of educational content.

Local radio and TV stations have taken up sex content especially in the morning and evening rush hour as it drives their ratings thus attracting advertisers.

In addition, preachers who ask for money in exchange for prayers have also been banned.

According to Standard, media houses doing free-to-air broadcasting have six months to comply with the new rules.

However, this new directive has been received with mixed reactions with some Kenyans strongly supporting the ban and others sympathizing with hosts of such talk-shows.
