Kenya Film Classification Board CEO, Ezekiel Mutua seems to be making lots of haters after he ordered all TV adverts and explicit music videos banned from national Televisions.
This did not go well since Kenyans on social media ranted with rage and insults calling this a hypocritical move since programmes like Soap operas still air on TVs.
However, Ezekiel Mutua has another specific foe. Last Friday night, Larry Madowo stripped KFCB boss after he posed in a business class flight. Ezekiel responded by firing back at Larry on Saturday morning. Larry went ahead and also responded harshly on him.
He wrote on his weekly front-row column on Daily Nation titled “Who will save us from the KFCB CEO?”
This is what Larry wrote; “You see, Mutua is a former journalist. In fact, he was a sub-editor for this very newspaper for eight years until 2002. Within Nation Centre, they are the studious types who pore over copy, pulling out the poor turn of phrase and sculpting articles into the (mostly) readable articles that end up in the paper.”
However, Larry took things personal and said the the KFCB CEO was only using his job to extend his personal brand.
“He has taken his job as boss of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) as an opportunity to extend his personal brand. Yet every time he opens his mouth to make a statement, most sensible people cover their faces with their hands in utter embarrassment.”
