Kenya: Board Seeks PCs Help On Movies

KENYA Film Classification Board has sought assistance from the Coast province Commissioner to curb illegal films in the region.

KFCB chairman Peter Alubale said the board is in need of the provincial administration effort to help it censor movies. Alubale was speaking yesterday at the Coast provincial headquarters, when a team from the board visited the deputy PC Jacob Ruto.

"We are requesting the support of the provincial administration to ensure only legal movies are screened in the region," Alubale said.

Alubale said the board wants to use the public forums convened by the provincial administration officers to reach people at the grassroots level.

"As a board we want to use the films to educate the public in the remote areas," he said. The KFCB boss said support from the provincial administration will help crackdown on the prohibited movie materials.

"We have been arresting people and arraigning them in court. However that is not enough, we need your help," Alubale said.
