Ezekial Mutua seeks to shut down all Facebook users posting fake news
Moral policeman Ezekiel Mutua has launched a new attack on social media accounts using pseudonyms to spread fake news.
Mr Mutua on Wednesday said he is working on a proposed law that will bar the use of fake Facebook names and accounts to malign other people’s reputation.
“To deal with the spectre of fake news, we are proposing a law that will bar people from using fake names and pseudonym. If you are not into any mischief why do you want to have a fake Facebook account?”
He added: “If you must give your true identity to open an M-Pesa account, why should you hide behind anonymity to operate a Facebook account to insult people?”
The Kenya Films Classification Board chief executive received a multitude of support for the proposal.
However a few were of a different opinion.
