Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua this week heaped praise on Kenyans for calling for the scrapping of 10 over 10, a show on Citizen TV.

Through a series of tweets, Mutua noted that it is irresponsible of the media station to air ‘pornographic’ content ‘during the day.

“Sometimes I wonder whether the owners of the station care about morality. Would they let their kids watch the discotheque on TV? Shame on the management & owners too!

“Schools are closed and kids are at home but our immoral and irresponsible media houses are airing pornographic content during the day in blatant breach of the watershed period.

“No sector operates with such impunity like the media. Your day will come guys. It will!” he said.

Further, the KFCB CEO opined that such shows promote sexual immorality and are undermining national development.

On Wednesday this week, Citizen GO, a community of active citizens who work together using online petitions as a resource, delivered a letter demanding cancellation of 10 over 10.

According to the document seen by Ureport, CitizenGO stated that the show has been parading half-naked teenagers who dance suggestively while twerking ‘using all sexually provocative styles.

The petition, delivered by the Campaigns Director for Africa Ann Kioko had more than 20,000 signatures.

“A national television station such as Citizen TV should not bring a show which is more of a discotheque with all sorts of pornography, nudity and sexual provocation being promoted” said Kioko.
