Kenyan anti-gay official, Ezekiel Mutua, thinks foreign NGOs are paying young people in Kenya to be gay

Ezekiel Mutua, the head of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) who was behind the decision to ban the film, Rafiki, which is the first Kenyan film to be selected for the Cannes Film Festival in France, has shared yet another piece of his anti-LGBTI views.

Mutua wrote to the government, asking them to investigate foreign non-government organizations operating in Kenya. Mutua believes some of them are giving young people money to be gay.

“We (KFCB) have asked the NGO Coordination Board to investigate the activities of some of the foreign NGOs in the country,” he told The Nairobian. “There are foreign NGOs… which move to the villages to manipulate our poor innocent youth with ‘big money’ of up to Sh3 million (US$30,00) for them to engage in this wicked act (homosexuality).”

Mutua argued that homosexuality was a western import and did not exist in Africa. He also said he would willingly give up his career fighting its spread in Kenya.

“These ‘mzungus’ (people of European descent) who are bringing and sponsoring this practice in Kenya should know that we are entrenched in our African morals and principles that portray sexual decency. Our fore parents did not practice homosexuality,” he said.

“I am willing and ready to lose my job of heading the moral board in a country where homosexuality is the order of the day. It will destroy even the future generations, which should not be the case.”

    Sometimes, I wonder if these African leaders actually listen to themselves as they speak. Why on earth are we going to progress, when even our homophobia is not sophisticated. Tufia! A whole director of an arts committee spouting this kind of ignorance.

    Shitty words from an even more shitty politician. This got me thinking of the general priorities of Africans.

    Sex and who you sleep with is more important than everything else…no wonder the continents rulers ignore basic human rights and amenities, but start chanting war songs and foaming in the mouth once two boys kiss each other consensually. Its pathetic!
