Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive, Ezekiel Mutua has been the butt of jokes from Kenyans online for suggesting the two gay lions recently spotted in Maasai Mara be isolated.
Mutua also also wants the two lions subjected to scientific research to determine how they acquired homosexual behavior.
In an interview with Nairobi News, Mr Mutua described the behaviour as “bizarre” adding that the two animals could acquired their homosexual tendencies by watching gay couples who tour the park..
If our lions begin this homosexual behaviour then that will surely be the end of the animal species. https://t.co/JL5wGR4NHW

But Kenyans on social have expressed divergent views over remarks by the self-proclaimed moral police. Here are some of their reactions:
Go isolate them yourself if you are man enough.
