Moral policeman Ezekiel Mutua wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to consider offering a cabinet seat to members of the popular Facebook group Kilimani Mums.
According to Mr Mutua, conversations in the group can help inform national policy.
The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) chief executive praised the group for having the courage to tackle sensitive national topics and the diversity in its membership.
“This is an online Bunge la Mwananchi par excellence. How were kenyans surviving without these platforms? People ventilate on all manner of topics, but the most striking thing is that Kilimani Mums represents Kenyans in the diversity – the serious, the funny, the peculiar, the intelligent. . .name them,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
NO POLITICAL INCLINATION
He added: “Apparently, Kenyans of all walks of life find space in Kilimani Mums. And unlike Kenyans on Twitter, another robust army of netizens with opinions on all subjects under the sun, Kilimani Mums has no political inclinations.”
“I think the President should consider a Cabinet slot for this hilarious group of Kenyans who provide such stress relief and humor. But most importantly, we can work with the minister to provide guidelines for classification of Kilimani Mums content on a self-regulatory model!”
Mr Mutua clarified that although he is not a member of the group, he learnt of its existence after its members started tagging him in some of their conversations.
“Guys started tagging me staff that they thought requires my attention as a regulator. “Has Mutua seen this?” Wait until the moral police gets wind of it . . .bla bla bla! So every so often I get a notification on fb and on checking I stray into some very strange but useful conversations,” Mr Mutua.
