Kenya is limiting the amount of foreign content its local broadcasters can show.

The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) is looking to impose a directive that all TV stations must limit non-Kenyan programming to 40 percent of their transmissions.

The Authority says it is working with Kenya’s government to help create a framework to help young artists and creatives to provide programming and multimedia material.

CA says that broadcasters who fail to adhere to the new limits risk being fined or will have to pay more into the nation’s Universal Service Fund licensing scheme.
