The Communication Authority of Kenya (CA) has today banned Apostle James Maina Ng’ang’as Sasa TV from airing for a period of six months for broadcasting inappropriate content.
According to CA Director General Ezra Chiloba, the decision was arrived at following investigations of content considered inappropriate aired on 3rd October 2021.
In his statement, Chiloba says the TV station violated provisions of the Kenya Information and Communications Act, 1998, Broadcasting Regulations, 2009, the Programming Code, and Broadcasting License Conditions.
“The Communications Authority of Kenya has directed M/S Neno Evangelism Centre, a broadcaster operating as SASA TV, to stop airing live programming with immediate effect. This directive shall be observed for a period of six (6) months,” the statement reads in part.
The CA has also directed that all Sasa TV employees/staff undergo mandatory training, are qualified and accredited by the Media Council of Kenya.
If Pastor Ng’ang’a doesn’t adhere to these directives, the CA says it will attract further sanctions including the revocation of Sasa TV license.
The Media Council of Kenya (MCK) had been threatening to take punitive actions against the TV station over obscenity fpor a while.
