Former Kenya Films and Classifications Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua came under fire following his latest Tweet defending his clean content campaign while serving at the helm of the board.
In his early Tweet today, the moral cop noted that the campaign against explicit content was not a personal matter, and an attack on anyone but rather a move to build and strengthen Kenya’s moral foundation.
Mutua continued that it was a collective responsibility through art and entertainment, through the conversations and stories.
“The campaign against dirty content is not a job or a personal matter. It’s not us vs them. It’s a collective effort to shape societal norms and values through art and entertainment. Our future depends on the moral foundation we build today through our conversations and stories,” he tweeted.
Dr. Ezekiel Mutua was always and advocate for clean content during his tenure as the Kenya Films and Classifications Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer an move that earned him Monikers like “Deputy Jesus or Moral Cop”.
His campaign against the dirty content pushed him to brushing shoulders with several artists and creatives accusing them of going against the clean content guidelines.
Among the top artistes Dr. Ezekiel Mutua clashed with include among others Comedians Eric Omondi and Mulamwah, not forgetting the latest one with Musician Kevin Bahati.
Falling out with creatives and being involved in some corrupt engagements are some of the reasons alleged to have led to his ouster as the KFCB CEO last week.
Mutua was sent to a terminal leave by the ICT Cabinet secretary Joe Mucheru, and his position taken over by CAK Boss Christopher Wambua in acting capacity, a move he has vowed to challenge in court.
