A day after Citizen TV's Willis Raburu hosted skimpily dressed ladies for yet another time on Citizen TV's 10 over 10 show that has earned the dishonourable title of very immoral and filthy due to explicit dances by skimpily-dressed ladies who grace the show every other week, Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua has asked Kenyans to boycott Citizen TV.

Deny Citizen TV audience, particularly the Willis Raburu crap - Ezekiel Mutua
Mutua took to Facebook to address his concerns over the show which he termed as very immoral and filthy.
He urged people to boycott the TV station after endless complaints that the 10 over 10 show was promoting immorality among the young people and has earned the dishonourable title due to explicit dances by skimpily-dressed ladies who grace the show every other week.
“Do not abrogate your role as a parent or citizen to others. Do your part. Deny Citizen TV audience, particularly the Willis Raburu crap and it will go off air” demanded Mr Ezekiel.
He said he had serious issues with the program, but he couldn’t ban the ‘obscenity’ since the show airs past 10pm, which is past the watershed period (5am to 10pm ) according to the law.
“I personally have serious issues with this program and have condemned it in no uncertain terms. But you see, 10/10 comes past 10pm, meaning it's outside the watershed period (5am to 10pm). Our regulatory mandate as per the law is restricted to that period. Past 10pm, no underage children should be watching TV without the guidance of the parent, let alone going to an immoral live TV show at that late hour.”
Ezekiel Mutua went ahead to say that the show was like a nightclub that aired its content on TV, displaying all the immorality and obscenity live on stage.
“True, 10/10 is the height of immorality. It's scatological filth and exemplifies the breakdown of our moral fabric. The host Willis Raburu has corrupted the airwaves with the "Wabebeee" nonsense that appears to admit underage children, although he says that all those who attend have IDs.
'The way he conducts the show makes it look like a discotheque on air. It's a night club brought to your TV with all immorality and obscenity live on stage”
Since his hands were tied on the matter, his only solution was to advise people to boycott the TV station and instruct their children not to watch the show.
“Do not abrogate your role as a parent or citizen to others. Do your part. Deny Citizen TV audience, particularly the Willis Raburu crap and it will go off air. Even a more fundamental question is whose children are these on such live TV discotheque? If their parents don't care why should I?”
Ezekiel Mutua reminded people that the was a lack of moral values in Kenya and that was the main cause of all the challenges experienced in the country. He blamed the media for being the major catalyst in spewing immorality but assured that KFCB was doing its best to restore sanity He called upon Kenyans of good will to support them in the fight to reinstate moral values in the society.
Many people have raised concern over the TV show saying that the program is not educative as it used to be.
