But Ezekiel Mutua the C.E.O of the board took the heat off him as he went on to unapologetically ban many things including the ‘Same Love’ video featuring popular gay activist and musician Joji Baro, Noti Flow and socialite Soila Cole.

For a while, Bishop Jackson Kosgei the current chairman of the Kenya Film Classification Board took the heat from the public after the banning of a few movies including the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’.
The board then went on to send a letter to Google demanding that the video be pulled down but Google refused saying that it infringed on the “freedom of expression.” However You Tube went on to flag the video as “being potentially inappropriate”, making it a small win for the board and other homophobes.
Despite his reputation as a stifle-r of all things good and as a moral cop, Ezekiel Mutua is quite accomplished.
He previously served as the Information Secretary, Director of Information and Public Communications and as a Secretary General in the Kenya Union of Journalists. He has also served as a director at Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) and has even worked as a board member in the Media Council of Kenya.
He also holds a Master’s Degree in Communication Studies from the University of Nairobi and is currently pursuing a PHD in communications at Moi University.
He is also a recipient of the prestigious Moran of the Order of the Burning Spear (MBS) presidential award which received in 2010.
His accomplishments do not stop at where he has worked, his academics or even his accolades, this KFCB C.E.O also has a beautiful wife.
