Ezekiel Mutua issues a new demand on pornography

The demand is set to majorly affect Mombasa.

Mr Mutua is now calling on the government to create a police task that will crack down on the sagging child pornography in Kenya.

He has noted that in order to effectively crack down on the vice, Kenya Film and Classification Board needed to have powers to prosecute and in addition, a special police unit which will be able to detect, investigate and [prosecute child pornography cases.

“To effectively crack down on child porn industry and it's perpetrators KFCB needs prosecutorial powers and a special police unit that can detect, investigate and prosecute child porn cases,” Mr Mutua said.

He added: “This vice must be confronted with vigor in the same way we are dealing with drug trafficking and terrorism!”

Mr Mutua who spoke on the sidelines of the ongoing training on communication amongst the KFCB team at Pride Inn Beach Resort has recanted that due to the weak laws, foreigners have been taking advantage to infiltrate the content into Kenya.

“We are in the process of procuring services of a firm that will carry out a survey to establish the levels of this vice especially at the coast where it is rampant,” he told the press.

He added: “Of the 26 cases of child pornography that we have reported in the past three years, none of them has been conclusively dealt with, as the culprits are going about their businesses as usual.”
