If you are a broadcaster in Kenya who undertakes ‘live broadcasts’ you need to be aware that, effective 1st January 2020, the Communications Authority of Kenya are mandating that all live Radio & Television broadcasts MUST have a broadcast profanity delay system in place able to remove profanity and other objectionable material.
