Mount Kenya Tv was closed with allegations of airing out pornographic content over the air which is against the rules of law. The children are now at home and it is unethical for them to be exposed to sex scenes as this increases the incidences of pre mature sex and early marriages.
The Tv station aired out an animated film featuring sex scenes that lasted for almost 45 minutes.This created reactions in the social media and thus it was reported for an action to be taken.
"Mt. Kenya tv violated content regulations by airing pornographic content. Now CA has shut them off for a month and slapped a 500k on them. Protection of children from premature exposure to adult content is a collective responsibility. I hope this will serve as a lesson to others,"Ezekiel Mutua said.
If this fine is not met then Tv station will not be in action for at least 1month without operating. The owner of the station said that they will appeal concerning the issue and they are sure that the allegations are not true.
