The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) on Friday rewarded a matatu driver and his conductor for promoting cleaning content.

KFCB CEO Ezekiel Mutua has been championing for sanity in the entertainment industry under KFCB’s Clean Content campaign since the year began.

On Friday a matatu plying Juja Road under Five Friends Sacco was crowned this month’s clean content ambassadors after the crew received a KFCB clean content license and a gift hamper from KFCB.

Speaking to Ghetto Radio, the matau driver James Maina expressed his gratitude to KFCB adding that his matatu which plies Nairobi CBD and Huruma Estate always plays clean content.

“I don’t play dirty music. I love Bongo but I make sure it is bongo music that even if you are travelling with a child you are not ashamed.” He said

Justin Ombati KFCB’s regional director said that KFCB is on a mission to ensure that Matatus in the country to not display nudity but only play clean content.

“We have been promoting this campaign under the Form ni Safi initiative. To promote this, we have also ensured we license matatus to have TVs because when you play music on TV in a matatu it means you are an exhibitor. This way we are also able to streamline guidelines to ensure only clean content is plaid in these matatus and others.” He said

In May a Rongai matatu named Gin and Juice, driven by John Thiongo Mwema and Hamisi Mtani (conductor) were the clean content ambassadors and walked away with a cash reward and other goodies.
