Former Kenya Films Classification Board (KFCB) boss Ezekiel Mutua has hinted at his entry into politics come 2022.
Speaking recently, the ex-KFCB boss claimed that he was unfairly removed from office adding that he has since challenged his ouster in a court of law.
Mutua argued that his ouster cannot derail his passion to serve Kenyans in other capacities stating that he is legally open to contest for any political seat apart from the Woman Rep seat as the law allows.
“If the court rules otherwise I am open to many options including running for the governorship of Machakos County,” Mutua said.
Until his unceremonious exit from office on August 6, 2021, Mutua was at the helm of KFCB operations since 2015.
Mutua’s hard stance on entertainment issues earned him friends and foes in equal measure.
He would often criticize works posted by creatives on YouTube or other social media platforms, making new enemies each time.
His entry into the Machakos gubernatorial seat sets another titanic battle in Machakos County as key politicians position themselves to succeed Alfred Mutua, who is serving his second and final term.
The Machakos gubernatorial seat has so far attracted Mutua’s deputy Francis Maliti, former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama, and Machakos Town MP Victor Munyaka.
Others in the race include Transport Chief Administrative Secretary Wavinya Ndeti, Machakos County Assembly Speaker Florence Mwangangi, Mavoko MP Patrick Makau, and lawyer Joel Mbaluka.
