Kenya: Why MP Wants 'Tahidi High' Banned From TV

Kilifi Woman Representative Gertrude Mbeyu wants the government to ban a local television program series for promoting immorality and unrest among students.

She said the program, 'Tahidi High' which airs every Tuesday on a local TV station, has themes which she does not support as a parent and a leader.

"The program is really messing up our students who are watching this program; they imitate what 'Tahidi High' is showing in our TV and they will not go far as they learn what the program is showing," Ms Mbeyu lamented.

She made the remarks at Barani Secondary School in Malindi during the Education Day hosted by area MP Aisha Jumwa. The event was graced by Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang.

Ms Mbeyu challenged the PS to go watch last Tuesday's episode of 'Tahidi High' to see for himself how the program is misleading students.

She promised to move a motion in Parliament to have the program banned from television.
