Ezekiel Mutua’s lecture to Kenyans on Government borrowing backfires

The Kenya Films Classifications and Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua took a swipe at a section of the Kenyans who vented their concerns, cautioning the International Monitory Fund (IMF) against lending to the Kenyan government.

Taking to social media, the KFCB boss informed Kenyans that their power lies in their ballot, which they however transfer to their leaders upon voting.

He added that the IMF does not conduct business on social media and thus the outbursts could be inconsequential.

“Your sovereign power lies at the ballot box.

Once you cast your vote, you can only exercise vigilance, but essentially you donate your power to your representatives after voting. You can petition IMF, but they do not sign contracts on social media. We are a peculiar lot indeed!” said Mutua.

His words however did not auger so well with the netizens who took him head-on giving him their pieces of mind while insisting that it was their right to protest in whatever way they deemed fit.

“But ndugu, you have used social media to communicate matters that you’d otherwise do in other official channels. Stop lecturing everyone on everything. Let the people use every and any legal means available to vent, to pronounce, to protest, and even to appraise. You can’t censor!” former Murweini MP Kabando Wa Kabando.

“Wrong! Citizens’ role doesn’t end at the ballot, it continues through vigilance, and part of being vigilant is calling the government to order when it breaches its contract with the electors. We all know your mouth is full so you’ve to be subservient.” Added Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga.

“What’s your reading of Art 37 of the Constitution: “Every person has the right, peaceably and unarmed, to assemble, to demonstrate, to picket, and to present petitions to public authorities.” You can picket and demonstrate anywhere, even in the sky. This is a virtual protest bro” Tweeted David Makali.

“Kenya’s sovereign power is vested in its citizens. They exercise their sovereign power either directly or through their democratically elected representatives. Yet another clueless point from Kenya’s high sparrow, his piousness. By the way, si must you contribute to every topic.”Author Sakwah Ongoma.

“Daktari, that is a misrepresentation of the facts. TAKE NOTE of the order of precedence of the clauses, BELONGS, EXERCISE, DELEGATED Katiba2010 Article 1 (1) All sovereign power BELONGS to the people of Kenya and shall be exercised only in accordance with this Constitution.” Weru Nyaga.

“2) The people may EXERCISE their sovereign power either directly or through their democratically elected representatives. (3) Sovereign power under this Constitution is DELEGATED to the ….. State organs, which shall perform their functions in accordance with this Constitution-“Added Weru Nyaga.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog
    that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is
    an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.
