Human rights and good governance lobbyist group CitizenGO on Wednesday, 4 November 2019 matched to Royal Media Services offices off Dennis Pritt road to present the petition signatures to end 10over10 a show aired every Friday on Citizen TV for airing content they termed as pornographic.
The TV show is hosted by experienced journalist Willis Raburu. The organisation led by Anne Kioko were denied entrance to the premises of the media house but were able to hand a letter addressed to Mr Wachira Waruru MD of Royal Media Services Group. According to the document, the petition to end 10over10 was signed by over 21,000 thousand Kenyans.
The TV show though aired during the watershed hours has ruffled the feathers of the content regulatory body KFCB led by Kenya’s moral cop. Dr Ezekiel Mutua.
Dr Ezekiel Mutua has always been on the forefront on castigating the show for airing content that is not fit for family viewership. The live entertainment show that hosts celebrities and young Kenyans have always faced backlash from a section of Kenyans who always term the dressing and dancing of the attendees of the show as inappropriate. Kenyans have expressed their feelings about the show on severally on social media but no action has ever been taken against the show.
