“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,” Gertrude Mbeyu expresses concern.
Gertrude Mbeyu who won the 2017 election to become the Kilifi Women Representative in Kilifi County, Kenya, is asking the government to ban local series “Tahidi High” from airing on TV. According to the parent and political leader, the high school comedy drama contains adult contents and promotes sexual immorality among youths.
After watching last Tuesday’s episode of ‘Tahidi High”, she called the attention of the PS to assess the contents of the series. She also insisted she will be moving a motion in Parliament to ensure that the series is banned from airing on TV, so it doesn’t corrupt students.
She expressed her concern at the Barani Secondary School in Malindi during the Education Day hosted by area MP Aisha Jumwa. The Education Principal Secretary, Belio Kipsang, was also present at the event.
