Tik Tok agrees to regulate its content

Short form video hosting service TikTok will work with Kenya in reviewing and monitoring its content, according to Mr Chew.

The move, President William Ruto said, will ensure that content on the platform adheres to agreed guidelines.

In a virtual meeting with President Ruto on Thursday morning, TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew committed to ensuring that content is moderated to fit community standards.

This new development means that inappropriate or offensive content will be expunged from the platform.

During the meeting, Mr Chew also agreed to set up a Kenyan Office to coordinate its operations in the continent.

The social media handle has, of late, met a myriad of backlash from Kenyans following the quality of some videos it airs. Many people felt that Tik Took has gone miles further in abusing media freedom by airing obscene videos and photos – and especially during night hours.

Mr Chew pledged to hire more Kenyans to work for the platform.
