The Communications Authority (CA) has suspended Neno Evangelist Ministry Pastor James Ng’ang’a’s Sasa TV for 6 months for airing unfit content.
In a statement on Saturday, CA Director-General Ezra Chiloba revealed that the decision was arrived at following investigations after which it was established that the content aired on the station was inappropriate hence violating the provisions of the Kenya Information and Communications Act 1998.
The TV station was further directed to ensure it has adequately trained and qualified personnel who are duly accredited by the Media Council of Kenya (MCK) to uphold integrity.
Chiloba also ordered the station to develop and implement adequate internal controls to ensure compliance with broadcast content standards adding that non adherence to the directives may attract further sanctions and even revocation of sasa tv license.
This directive comes hardly one month after Pastor Ng'ang'a, who is currently in the US, dismissed a letter from Media council that questioned his Sasa Tv claiming that the media is only answerable to the Communications Authority.
