Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) has ordered local producers to increase local content on television from the current 40 percent to 60 percent in a move to promote local talent and create employment, The Star reported. CA director general Francis Wangusi said the industry regulator is working to promote local production after complaints by local producers on the amount of airtime allocated to them.

Wangusi, who was speaking during the Public and Stakeholders Consultation forum on the Draft Kenya and Communications Regulations 2015, said CAK has clarified what local content means under the Broadcasting Regulations Act.
