Ezekiel Mutua Goes After Samantha the Sex Doll

  • Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ezekiel Mutua on Saturday declared his intention to have the government issue a ban on sex dolls like Samantha. 

    Speaking during the Scouts Founders Day in Nyeri County, Mutua stated that his board has began working closely with other relevant departments to ensure such 'dolls' are not imported into the country.

    Mutua, who asserted that the scouts' movement is a key pillar in building Kenyan youth, insisted on the young people nurturing moral values which according to him does not include the use of sex dolls.

    In January 2017, Samantha the sex doll became a topic of discussion in Kenya and all over the world.

    Mutua is reported to have trolled the debate at the time likening intimacy with the doll to being intimate with a dead body.

    "This Samantha thing is glorified necrophilia. There's no difference between having sex with a doll and doing it with a dead body!" he exclaimed.

    According to UK magazine, Express, the doll is 'the most realistic sex robot you will ever see.'

    Its creator, Barcelona-based engineer Sergi Santos, stated that Samantha can respond to basic conversation and needs to be seduced before any action takes place.

    “Basically she likes to be touched. She has different modes of interaction ― she has romantic, she has family and she has also sexy modes," he told the magazine.

    The doll is able to respond to different scenarios because it was developed with artificial intelligence (AI).

    The hyper-realistic robot, which is made from “polymer composite” retails at £2,500 which amounts to Sh 316,000.
