  • Agriculture CS, Mwangi Kiunjuri, on Tuesday, posted a video on his Facebook page that contravened a directive by Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) boss, Ezekiel Mutua.

    The CS posted a video of himself among other people dancing to popular hit song ‘Tetema’ after to a public performance ban of the song.

    In the video captioned “If you are young and talented, it is like you have wings. Believe in yourself. During the Laikipia Awards 2019 at the Nanyuki Sportsmans Arms”, Kiunjuri is seen showing off his dance moves.

    The CS's post came barely an hour after Mutua banned any public performance showcase of the song and the now famous ‘Wamlambez’ anywhere outside clubs.

    The KFCB boss described the two songs as pure pornography.

    He further noted that it was embarrassing to see even national leaders singing and dancing to that type of music in public.

    “The idea is to protect children from premature exposure to adult content. The lyrics sound very catchy but the meaning is very vulgar.

    It’s embarrassing when you find the songs being played even in schools and children are performing them in front of their parents while they (parents) take photos of them.

    What have we become as a society? I saw some kindergarten children performing ‘Kwangwaru’ singing ‘inama inama(bend over)’ while their mothers are taking photos.

    Wamlambez is derived from the word lamba (lick), it is pornography,” Mutua explained.

    Mutua urged members of the public to cooperate with KFCB in implementing the directive, saying that the body is finalising an official statement on the matter.
