KFCB has also appointed a mediation team which includes comedians Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki and Felix ‘Jalango’ Odiwuor.
The team, dubbed self sensorship, is expected to come up with a roadmap for digital content providers to ensure they create clean content.
Ezekiel Mutua, a self-proclaimed moral cop, has been very vocal about the need for clean content which is not harmful to Kenyan children.
A section of Kenyans have criticized him for trying to dictate the kind of content they consume.
His critics also claim that Kenyans have access to dirtier content from abroad.
