Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua is mandated to lead the organization in regulating the creation, broadcasting, possession, distribution and exhibition of films in the country with a view to promote national values and morality.
This function does not exclusively mean formulating regulations to police the entertainment industry but also requires the incorporation of stakeholders in understanding and embracing the virtuous responsibilities entailed.
Even though KFCB has prominently involved itself in different moral campaigns, it has failed to build a mutual understanding with online content creators.
This has exposed it to attacks from different celebrities who feel excessively criticized when they are being given very little support.
Mutua has in many occasions faced off with top comedian Eric Omondi, but it is his recent exchange with Mulamwah that points to a father losing the grip on children he is expected to morally parent.
Mulamwah yesterday called out on Mutua for negating on a promise he made last year when the funnyman underwent low moments.
Instead of giving a calm response, Mutua came out combatively while mentioning Mulamwah for his dirty and unfit content.
You are a great opportunist , we await you on your next victim . No background check was done , i dont do dirty content , the token i think was for me to do for you a personalised video thanking you then i post on my socials , when i included others who helped you rejected it . https://t.co/neQzTzAIDr

The exchange resulted to ugly comments from netizens which worsened the situation.
It is time the moral cop had a sit down with the content creators to pan a better relationship.
