CCK to regulate broadcast content
Posted on Thursday, September 03, 2009 @ 13:00:48 CDT by kwpnews



NAIROBI (KBC/KNA) - The Communication Commission of Kenya has been mandated to regulate broadcast content to make it palatable to all listeners and viewers.

According to the Director of Information, Ezekiel Mutua, CCK through the universal conflict advisory board will also ensure that local content takes precedence over foreign programmes.

Mutua who was meeting women leaders in his office as they launched a solar powered radio to be distributed to women groups in marginalized regions urged media houses to adhere to the set stipulations while congratulating those that have already adopted the trend of going local.

The patron of the caucus for women's leadership, Dr Phoebe Asiyo said the media as it is now represents and reaches a small population of women in Kenya.

She said the distribution of the solar powered radio to marginalized women would help in empowering them to take up both leadership and developmental roles.


The caucus also announced plans to unveil a radio station to extensively cover local women in a bid to empower them.

Asiyo said that they were optimistic of rolling out the Wamama radio station soon after they made formal application to the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK).


she said.

Mutua assured the women of government's support in ensuring that they succeed in their quest for an exclusive women radio station and hailed them for their current campaign of availing solar-powered radios to women in marginalized areas




"We appreciate the role that our media houses are playing in promoting the empowerment of women but they only give us about 21 per cent which is concentrated in urban areas and that is why time has come for us to fill the existing gap by providing the alternative voice that is missing in both print and electronic media,"
