Citizen TV Warned Over Smoking Scenes In Tahidi High.
The Tobacco Control Board has written to Citizen TV raising concern over one its popular programs, Tahidi High. The board has instructed the station to stop airing smoking sessions on the popular drama which airs Tuesday nights.
The boards alternate secretary, Ibrahim Longolomoi, said “Those people who are acting on Tahidi High are actually celebrities of sorts. They are role models and when young children grow seeing celebrities puffing cigarettes, then actually it’s a wrong message to our young children.”
The board has in addition warned all media houses to restrain from airing content that promote tobacco abuse.
