About a month ago, joy and cheers filled the air amongst most in the entertainment industry, and even outside it, when news broke out that the Kenya Film Classification Board Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ezekiel Mutua had been fired and replaced with a certain Mr. Christopher Wambua from the Communications Authority. Dr. Ezekiel had been accused of riding entertainers hard with his stringent rules, and his expectations which were considered unrealistic and unreasonable. However, following their experience so far with the new CEO, they might very well start calling for Dr. Mutua to be brought back.
Ezekiel Mutua, who had been disparagingly branded ”Moral Cop” and later on, “Deputy Jesus” by his critics, may have had his faults, but one thing about him is that he always had time for people. He always had time for the media, entertainers and even his critics.
His predecessor Christopher Wambua, is however, a different ball game altogether.
Potential fans who have been trying to keep up with him, or find out what he has been upto online have been greeted by a very strange and stark message. His Twitter handle reads, “THIS TWEETS ARE PROTECTED” which means that they can only be accessed by his followers.
For all his drama, Dr. Mutua was never this exclusive, and all his posts could be accessed by all and sundry.
ICT CS Joe Mucheru appointed Communications Authority of Kenya’s (CAK) Director of Communications and External Affairs Christopher Wambua as the new CEO in an acting capacity early this month.
Wambua is an accomplished communication expert with masters in international studies and a postgraduate diploma in mass communication from UoN.
He started his career at Jomo Kenyatta University as a Public Relations Officer in 1997 where he worked for two years.
Wambua moved to the Tea Board of Kenya in 2000 where he worked in the same position for 6 months.
He joined the CAK that same year as an assistant public relations officer and was promoted to the position of Communication Manager after 12 years.
In 2014 he became the Assistant Director in charge of Multimedia Content and Innovation and was promoted to the position of a director the following year.
