The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Dr Ezekiel Mutua has cleared the air over claims that he sexually harassed one middle-aged woman identifying herself as Nancy Wambui on Twitter.
Speaking in an interview on NTV, Dr. Mutua dismissed Nancy’s claims terming it as a non-issue.
Nancy who recently took to the micro-blogging site to write: “I am a former employee at KFCB. This ‘righteous’ [expletive] used to harass all female staff. He always insisted on long hugs and inappropriate touching. When I complained, I would be asked to quit. So, I did [quit]. All he did was masturbate in his corner office. Ezekiel Mutua, I am going to court,” said Nancy, whose Twitter handle is @NancyWambui94.
Responding to the said-Nancy, Dr Mutua said: “KFCB clarified that issue. We have never had anyone like that [in our office] before or during my term. So, that is a non-issue. I, however, expect it [people to fabricate claims to make me look bad]. For the last three years, we have raised the bar of moral standards very high. The woman’s claims have no basis. Anyone can sit anywhere [and construct a false claim against you]. Just ignore the woman’s claims,” said Dr Ezekiel Mutua.
The KFCB boss further said he won’t sue the said-Nancy for defamation.
“Why would I take any legal action against that woman? The Twitter account she used to publish those allegations is fake; [it is] a parody account. However, if she was a real person, then I would have taken her to court. The fact that no one went to court… Remember her post ended in: ‘Let’s meet in court’,” said Dr Ezekiel Mutua.
The film agency board CEO christened ‘moral police’ said KFCB would continue monitoring artistes’ on-stage performances to ensure that they serve their fans with decent shows.
