The Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Dr Ezekiel Mutua has backed the proposal by Garissa Township MP Aden Duale seeking to have access to pornographic content banned within the Kenyan territory.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Ezekiel Mutua noted that banning access to pornographic content will go a long way in protecting children from inappropriate content.

“I support the Duale Bill seeking to curb pornography in Kenya. Posting nudes online or sharing pornographic images in public violates moral decency. The spirit of the bill is to promote responsible use of the internet and to protect children from exposure to harmful content!” he tweeted.

Dr Ezekiel Mutua popularly known as the ‘Moral Police’ has been on the forefront in championing for clean content.

Dr Mutua is of the school of thought that vulgar content is not a sure guarantee of increased sales.

He now joins COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli who has also supported Duale’s Bill on banning of pornography in Kenya.

If the Bill is approved by Parliament, people sharing pornographic materials will be jailed for at least 25 years or face a fine of Sh20 million.

“A person shall not knowingly publish pornography through a computer system produced pornography for its publication through a computer system, download, distribute, circulate cell, or make it available in any way for telecommunications operators,” the bill reads.

This will be the first major step towards combating pornographic content in the country.
