DStv Pulls Plug On 'Gay-Themed' Kids Content On Its Platform Across Africa
Multichoice Africa has confirmed it will stop the broadcas of children's programmes with "homosexual theme". It says the content will be removed from its DStv platforms across Africa with immediate effect.
The affected programmes will include, but not limited to, the Legend of Korra, Hey Arnold, Steven Universe, Loud House, Clarence and Adventure Time. Most of the affected content is from the Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Nicktoons stables.
According to our expert on this issue, the decision by Multichoice Africa to indefinitely suspend carrying these shows is as a direct result of applied pressure from Films and videos regulators. It will be recalled that Kenya Film Classification Board already placed a ban on some of these content being broadcasted in Kenya.
