Kilifi Woman Rep: Tahidi High comedy-drama must be banned from TV

Tahidi High is one of the oldest local productions that still airs on Citizen TV. The comedy-drama however faces uncertain future as Kilifi Woman Representative Gertrude Mbeyu now calls for the show to be banned.

According to Gertrude Mbeya, Tahidi High represents everything wrong with the Kenyan education system for secondary schools.

The lawmaker blames the Citizen TV show for immorality, indiscipline, and unrest among secondary school students in the country. There has been a recent spate of incidents of arson at various secondary schools in Kenya.

The Kilifi Woman Rep says high school students have learned to be violent thanks to Tahidi High. She claims the Citizen TV show promotes themes which she does not support as a parent and a leader.

“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,” said Gertrude Mbeyu.
