I’d rather lose my job than promote homosexuality, says Ezekiel Mutua

Dr Ezekiel Mutua

The Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) boss Dr Ezekiel Mutua has written a letter to the NGOs coordination board to investigate foreign NGOs suspected of funding homosexuality in Kenya.

In an exclusive interview with The Nairobian in Kakamega town, Dr Mutua says these NGOs reach out to poor innocent youth in rural villages and surprise them with big money to engage in the practice (homosexuality).

“We (KFCB) have asked the NGO Coordination Board to investigate the activities of some of the foreign NGOs in the country. If they do not stop, I will lead in picketing and demonstrations to make our message heard,” Mutua said.

He added: “There are foreign NGOs in Kisumu and Kakamega which move to the villages to manipulate our poor innocent youth with ‘big money’ of up to Sh3 million for them to engage in this wicked act.”

According to him, this is a kind of neo-colonialism that will not prosper under his watch since it will end up destroying the country that is enriched with African morals and principles.

“These mzungus who are bringing and sponsoring this practice in Kenya should know that we are entrenched in our African morals and principles that portray sexual decency. Our fore parents did not practice homosexuality,” he said.

The ‘moral cop’ said he is ready to lose his job if the fight against homosexuality becomes so fierce for him to win. 

“I am willing and ready to lose my job of heading the moral board in a country where homosexuality is the order of the day. It will destroy even the future generations, which should not be the case.”

Mutua further termed the supporters and sympathisers of homosexuality as insane because, “mature men end up in diapers because they have been ‘destroyed’ by their fellow men. It is high time we stopped this Westernised and good-for-nothing practice.”

In the neighbouring East African countries of Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda, homosexuality is banned and “it is only in Kenya where such people are getting a safe haven to continue with their acts.”

This comes after KFCB banned the distribution, exhibition or broadcasting of a Kenyan film titled Rafiki for advancing lesbianism.

“The name of the movie should be changed to Immorality, because that is what it is. It is so dirty to let anybody watch it,” he said.

Article 45 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 defines marriage as a union between persons of the opposite sex. Further, sections 162,163 and 165 of the penal code criminalises homosexual behaviour, with the state not recognising relations between persons of the same gender.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, in an interview with CNN said the topic of gay rights is of no importance to Kenyans.
