Kenya Films Classification Board (KFCB) chief executive Ezekiel Mutua on Monday fell prey to a fake “sex” billboard doing rounds online.

The billboard by MultiChoice Kenya was photo-shopped to read “kudinya” instead of “kudunga.”

The moral policeman, quickly took to social media to admonish the subscription TV service provider’s advert saying that it was highly “unacceptable.”

“I am told kudinya is a sexual slang. It’s Ghetto language for sexual intercourse. In the name of creativity, advertisers are sexualising everything under the sun. I hope this poster being circulated in social media is fake. If it is real, the County Government officials who licensed the billboard should revoke the license immediately,” he said on Facebook.

Little did Mutua know, the advert was fake as was clarified by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

In a tweet, the county boss said his officers had checked out the said billboard and it was “purely photo shop.”

“This is purely photoshop. I have personally sent my officers to confirm whether the billboard bearing the sexual slang exists,” he wrote.

He would later retract his earlier statement noting that MultiChoice had reached out and made it clear that the said advert was non-existent.

“Multichoice management has confirmed to me that the poster circulating in social media is fake. There’s no campaign like that by Gotv. Thank you Governor Mike Sonko for your quick action. This is the kind of collaboration we need to protect children from exposure to harmful content. Much appreciated Sir,” he said.
