Dr. Ezekiel Mutua worked at KFCB until he earned himself Kenya’s ‘Moral Policeman’ label for criticism of being morally high-handed. He was always in fights with Kenyan content creators who frequently complained about board censorship.
Dr. Mutua was asked to go on compulsory leave by KFCB in 2021 pending investigations by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).
