KFCB Chairman Dr Ezekiel Mutua said that matatu operators with mounted screens have to ensure that they only exhibit and display films and content that are suitable for general exhibition. “What we are doing first is to ensure that we license the matatu’s as public exhibitors and give the operators the classification guidelines so that the content shared is rated GE”, said Mutua, during the Mombasa operation, on Monday. This comes barely a week after he warned operators of Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) against airing unrated content and playing loud music, announcing that they will have to get their content rated as ‘’General Exhibition’. In his tweet, he said: “To make progress as a country we must reconstruct our moral foundation. Media is key to this narrative about the restoration of moral values and that's why as a Board we advocate for clean content in PSVs with screens”.
