In order to protect children, Kenya on 8 January 2016 published new broadcast regulations that place strict limits on sexual content. The regulations also ban preachers from soliciting money from audiences in exchange of blessings and prayers on air.

The new rules contained in the Programming Code for Free-to-Air Radio and Television Services apply to programmes as well as advertisements, programme listings and promotions.

Kenya's Communications Authority (KCA) said that explicit content has been banned on airwaves between 5am to 10pm. Broadcasters have until June 2016 to comply with the new rules.

According to reports, this is the first time that a concerted effort has been made to censor Kenyan radio stations.
