Anti-gay crusader Mutua flaunts diplomatic passport ahead of US trip

Morality policeman Ezekiel Mutua on Monday flaunted his newly acquired Kenyan diplomatic passport on Facebook, hitting at critics who said he would be barred from United States due to his stand against gays and lesbians.

Mr Mutua, the Kenya Film Classification Board chief executive, has previously banned a song by a gay artiste from Kenyan airwaves, as well as banished a same sex speed dating event.

On Monday, he took to social media to declare that those who thought his actions would bar him from visiting America were wrong.

He went on to brag how the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and US embassy officials ensured he not only got a visa, but a diplomatic passport as well, duly delivered to his office.

Mr Mutua’s commission over the weekend held an event in Chuka University aimed at promoting morality among the young people.

The chief executive posted, “The KFCB Media Literacy Program dubbed “You are What You Consume” got a shot in the arm today with new champions including Members of Parliament, top officials from State House, celebrated artistes, media, investors and leaders from diverse sectors of society. Together we shall stem the moral slide and bring back sanity in our nation!”
