Ezekiel Mutua Calls Out Female MPs Over Offensive Remarks

  • On Tuesday, November 12, Kenya Film Classification Board CEO, Ezekiel Mutua called out female legislators, Cate Waruguru and Millie Odhiambo for their vulgar utterances.

    In a post on his Facebook page, Mutua asked the two women leaders to apologise for their irresponsible remarks and repent. Otherwise, he called for churches to ban them from speaking in hallowed places of worship.

    The KFCB boss argued that they were supposed to be an epitome of morality in the society, and role models to young ladies and women.

    As a result, Mutua stated that the use of sexual jargon and explicit vulgar words on fellow leaders, subverted their moral consciousness, terming the acts as shameful and disgusting.

    "Using sexual innuendo and obscene epithets on fellow leaders in public like Millie Odhiambo and Cate Waruguru did over the weekend is a new low - shameful and disgusting." A section of the post read.

    He highlighted Likipiawomen representative Cate Waruguru's comments regarding ODM leader Raila Odinga's potency and Millie Odhiambo's remarks when she related ODM's Kibra win to sexual satisfaction attained in a living room.

    Mutua called upon the general public to hold these leaders accountable for unpleasant talk, and for media houses in the country to condemn and shame such acts.

    Mutua follows in the steps of Martha Karua, who publicly called out her fellow women for the type of politics they were indulged in.

    "The most unfortunate thing happening now in the Kenyan political space is women parliamentarians agreeing to become praise choirs for male groupings seeking to succeed the current president," Karua was quoted by the Standard.
