MP links analogue TV to moral decadence

03 December 2013, 17:18 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The migration of television signals from analogue to digital will sell and promote locally produced programmes, Nyeri County Member of Parliament Priscilla Nyokabi said Monday.

Nyokabi said that television channels are currently flooded with programs sourced from foreign countries, most of which are morally destructive to the society.

The legislator backed the government’s move to switch off the analogue transmission of television signals.

Nyokabi observed that the migration would provide a wider viewer platform and give Kenyans more content that would equally promote local talent and art.

She said once the country switches to digital transmission of programs, local television channels will focus more on youth, children and sports among others.

The parliamentarian noted that many countries including America have been internationally selling their talent and culture through broadcast content.

The MP’s sentiments come barely two weeks to December 13 when the government is scheduled to switch off all analogue televisions starting with Nairobi County and its environs.

The activity will later roll out to other regions of the country ahead of the 2015 global deadline.

However, some broadcasters have moved to court seeking orders to have the project halted arguing that Kenyans are not ready and that the switch will significantly affect business.
