CS Magoha vouches for the ban of inappropriate websites
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha says the ban on pornographic websites in Kenya should be enforced.
The combative CS spoke during the opening ceremony of the Kenya Music Festival in Kisumu on Monday.
He argued that while the internet has proven useful to learners, it has come with some challenges that have to be addressed.
“In as much as we enjoy the freedom of everything including the internet, the pornographic sites centres must be blocked as soon as yesterday,” he stressed.
The outgoing CS added he expected his actions to attract criticism, but was not bothered.
“When I mentioned this they said no, you are a dictator but as far as pornography is concerned I want to remain as dictator in everyone’s mind.”
He added that blocking websites that have access to adult content would ensure the children’s safety.
“You do not want your children who are going to primary school to know all types and positions of having sex, or do you? he posed.
Magoha has in the past blamed adult sites for early pregnancies and petitioned the president to have them blocked.
