Kenyans have been angered by the recent move of Kenya Film Classification Board CEO, Ezekiel Mutua to speak in defense of the Kiuna’s for hosting the CNN news anchor Quest’s at Jubilee Christian Church yesterday.
The uproar came about after Kenyans argued that Ezekiel Mutua is a double standard man.
Mutua, months ago spoke harshly against the practice of homosexuality after he faced criticism over the ban of the Rafiki Film.
“It would be a tragedy and a shame to have homosexual films defining the Kenyan culture. That’s not who we are and homosexuality is not our way of life.”reads one of his tweet. Mutua had declared his stand publicly saying that homosexuality is not our way of life.
After his long post on Facebook yesterday Kenyans were shocked thinking that his account had been hacked; others even went ahead to ask him to delete the post since they felt that it was a slight contradiction and creates confusion on his stand over the gay debate.
Although Mutua did not side with the homosexual practice, Kenyans still think that it was unfair for him to strongly defend Quest’s visit yet her openly spoke ill against the support of homosexuality during the time of the Rafiki ban.
His sexual orientation has nothing to do with his work. Let him be. Let the Kiunas be. Quest was not in church to sell gay ideology. He was there to cover a story of resilience and hope. He chose to highlight variant topics of hope and determination and that is a good thing.” reads post in part
His statement however did not settle well with some Kenyans have a look at the reactions

@OliverMathenge Dkt Mutua is right unless you misinterpreted his post;Quest was in church to highlight kiuna’s audacity to dream BIG not to promote LGBT
