Kenya Movie Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua has insisted that the board has nothing towards artistes and younger individuals.
Taking to Twitter, Mutua mentioned the one factor they’re towards is soiled content material.
He added that each one they’re doing is defending kids towards publicity to grownup content material, by selling clear content material.
“The battle will not be towards artistes or the youth. It is towards soiled content material. The intention is to not harass artistes or stifle creativity. The concept is to advertise clear content material and defend kids towards publicity to grownup content material!” mentioned Dr. Ezekiel Mutua.
His phrases come a day after KFCB Compliance officers and DCI officers arrested comedian Eric Omondi for producing and distributing his Spouse Materials present.
In a press release, KFCB mentioned that the comic was arrested for contravening the Movies and Stage Performs Act Cap 222, which prohibits manufacturing and distribution of unauthorized movies, and on this case his Spouse Materials collection.
“The Kenya Movie Classification Board Compliance Officers at the side of Police Officers from the Directorate of Legal Investigations (DCI) have this afternoon arrested one Eric Omondi for violating the provisions of the Movies and Stage Performs Act Cap 222 of the Legal guidelines of Kenya by producing and distributing unauthorized movies dubbed “Spouse Materials”,” learn the KFCB assertion.
