Boniface Mwangi has fired some shots aimed at some KFCB Boss Ezekiel Mutua after he took to social media to criticize the “socks” condom advert airing on most TV stations.
According to Mutua, the advert doesn’t meet the standard requirements of the board and should be stopped from airing during watershed period.
“Following complaints and concerns raised by a cross-section of Kenyans regarding the “socks” condom advert airing in most Tv stations during prime time, the Board today launched investigations on the matter and has established that the advert was not submitted for examination and classification in line with the requirements of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222.The airing of the advert is therefore in contravention of the law and the producers, distributors and broadcasters will be held liable for the breach. The Board has given instructions to its lawyers to proceed and prosecute the concerned institutions for the breach.” He said.
Bonface Mwangi has since taken to social media to respond to the KFCB boss saying the advert is needed for sex education.
“Finlad had 4.5 million people in 1963, Kenya had 8 million. Today Finland has 4.5 million Kenya has 50 million.A condom is a contraceptive and a disease preventer. If your dad had used a condom our youth would have been spared of your ignorant moral crusade.” Said Boniface
Ezekiel then responded to the activist saying the condoms don’t promote safe sex or protection.
“These condoms do not promote safe sex of prevention. They sensualises the product.Its more of a business than a safety campaign.” Said Mutua
