Ezekiel Mutua, CEO of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), has finally weighed in on a controversial tweet by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) that showed two rhinos romping in the wild.

The moral cop, as he is referred to on social media, was expected to give the wildlife body a tongue-lashing but saw humour in the tweet saying,” RATED FOR ADULTS ONLY! Wacha wanyama wajienjoy.”

KWS on Wednesday showed its wild side after posting a picture of two rhinos engaging in coitus at the Nairobi National Park.

The photo was captioned: “What's a Wednesday afternoon timeline without a little romp? Talk about Sex and the City!” and had attracted a number of reactions within a short time.

While a section of netizens questioned the purpose of the tweet, others commended their daring act and read humour into it.

Mutua has often been firm on matters morals and in May 2018, he raised concern over a sculpture of two wildebeests erected at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

He stated that the sculpture was sexually suggestive and branded those behind it as ‘dirty minds.’

“This sculpture is bizarre and thoughtlessly sexualized. The sexual connotation depicted in this sculpture adds no value to the marketing of Kenya to tourists arriving or leaving JKIA.

“It’s the work of a dirty mind trying cheaply to sell their creativity. It is not different from the dirty minds who sexualize adverts on TV or on outdoor advertising.

“This sculpture would not lose any value if the animals were simply grazing in their natural habitation. The mounting aspect sends a wrong message and the sculpture must change,” said the KFCB CEO at the time.
