Kenyans on social media have attacked Citizen TV’s Kubamba show for promoting immorality among high school students instead of teaching and impacting them to focus more on academics.The row was sparked by the show’s segment that allowed students from Mukumu girls to send greetings to their lovers and boyfriends on national television
Kenyans on social media have voiced their displeasure at Citizen TV’s Sunday Gospel show, Kubamba. The show has for years targetted the Kenyan younger audience and has been making trips to secondary schools across the country for live shows.
One of the segments during the show allows the students to send greetings from their school to their family or whomever they are close to. Most recently, however, the show has been allowing the students to send their regards and compliments to their boyfriends or girlfriends.
While it is the 21-st century and things have significantly changed, Kenyans feel that the TV station is encouraging immorality in schools by conditioning the students to feel that having a boyfriend is a crucial part of growing up.
The uproar was sparked when the show which was airing at Mukumu girls allowed a girl to send her lofty message through the airwaves to her boyfriend.
A section of Kenyans feels that any programme of such nature in schools should only be charged with promoting positivity, preserve morals while teaching the young students to gravitate towards academics more.
After all, there are more important things in high school than having a lover. Say like studying Chemistry.
