Nairobi - The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) has raised alarm over increased rate of youth radicalization and child pornography through computer and video materials.

KFCB chief executive officer, Ezekiel Mutua said radicalization of youths is now being done through DVDs which are on the sale on the streets.

Speaking during a meeting with Nyeri County Commissioner, Onesmus Musyoki, the CEO said terror groups are using technology to reach their targeted age groups.

“Radicalization materials are now being sold in the streets as DVDs and video games. There is need for vigilance and collaboration among all stakeholders,” said Mutua.
