Kenya Broadcasting Corporation managing director Dr. Naim Bilal on Wednesday joined Kenya Film Classification Board CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, Mathare Constituency MP Antony Oluoch and a technical team from Multichoice in inspecting the proposed site for the Mathare talent development center.
The tour is expected to enable technical teams from KFCB, KBC and multichoice to determine the scope of work that needs to be done to have the centre up and running in the shortest time possible.
According to Dr Mutua, the teams from the said organisations are planning to work with the leadership of Mathare Constituency to identify and nurture talent as part of the contribution to the Big Four Development Agenda of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
KFCB through its #SinemaMashinani program has partnered with the State broadcaster and multichoice to establish talent resource centres across the country with the view to creating talent nurturing facilities for youth in the creative economy.
