Kenya Ban Preachers, Sex Talk on Radio

Kenya authority has restricted religious preachers from using Radio as a means of extorting money from audience and also placed ban on ‘sex talk’ in day time.
It was gathered that the preachers promise bigger blessings for bigger offerings via radio and at times drawing condemnation from traditional churches who describe them as false teachers.
One preacher recently hit the headlines for faking miracles and asking people to send him about $3 each. Some preachers are thought to have built empires out of these pledges.
For a country where 84% of the population follow Christianity, the preachers tend to have a big following.
In the same vein, Kenyan Television and radio stations will have to tone down some of their daytime shows according to new regulations, which have just been released.
The document says: save for educational programmes which may require graphic details, no broadcasting station shall air programmes including interactive call-ins or discussion sessions whose content is suitable for adult only audience during the watershed period ( 5am and 10am).
The BBC, Nairobi reports that popular radio stations in the country often broadcast explicit content during peak hours to attract audiences.
Adding that a morning ride to work on a bus in Kenya will likely have you listen to radio call-ins from fathers confessing to having sexual feelings for their children, or women who are dissatisfied with the performance of their husbands in the bedroom.
