The KFCB CEO went ahead to propose a benevolent dictatorship for Kenya to change 

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua has called on the public to lead the way in guarding our cyberspace.

Speaking at an interview in a morning radio show on Hot 96, Mutua said there is a need to enhance public awareness particularly among kids on the dangers that come with being online.

“There is need to guard our cyberspace and enhance public awareness particularly among kids so that they know there are criminals online.” Said Dr. Mutua.

The self-proclaimed moral policeman went ahead to propose a benevolent dictatorship, which refers to a country in which an authoritarian leader exercises absolute political power over the state but is perceived to do so with regard for benefit of the population as a whole. 

“We need a benevolent dictator who will not take nonsense who will say this is it and the country will have to move that way,” Mutual added.

The KFCB boss rebuked the culture that Kenyans have of pulling each other down in church, politics and respective professions.

Ezekiel highlighted how Kenyans joke around, mock leaders, have no respect for God, authorities, and parents saying we can’t progress this way as a country.

He called on the leaders to set the right tone by walking the talk.

On Rafiki Movie, Mr. Mutua said he does not ban movies, he explains that there are 15 external examiners who make the decision, the examiners are made of professional members of the public, from journalists, lawyers, psychologists and educationalists.

The KFCB CEO says the people who make decisions to ban movies are not employees of KFCB, he explains that this is to avoid any internal manipulation. 

He did the interview after Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) directors renewed his term as the chief executive for three more years.

Dr. Mutua was first appointed CEO on October 26, 2015, and his tenure was set to end this Friday.

However, the directors have deemed it fit to renew his contract for a second term.
