Mutua warned of serious consequences if public means of transport are found promoting such content.
The KFCB boss was speaking following a series of complaints that he has received from members of the public on how pornographic material, loud music, and adult content is being used in Matatus.
The stories of agony told by passengers in PSVs are very disturbing. The display, exhibition or playing of pornographic content, loud music and foul language used on passengers presents an image of a public transport sector gone rogue.
“Some matatus have become theatres for pornographic content and are destroying our youths, especially students, some of whom simply spend the whole day consuming this content.”
All public means of transport have been advised to remove all television screens until when they get an exhibition permit which costs Ksh 2,000 a year.
That being not over, he advised the playing of family-friendly content at all times.
