Government Through Ezekiel Mutua Gives Stern Warnings To All Politicians.

As the time to the 2022 general elections come closer the government is trying to ensure that the country's security is not interfered with now forcing them to give stern warnings to politicians.

Earlier on the interior security cabinet secretary, Dr. Fred Matiang'i said that the internet will not be shut but measures to deal with those who are going to misuse it are put in place.

Ezekiel Mutua, the CEO of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), speaking in Mombasa on Friday, July 9th set strict rules to curb political leaders' use of social media ahead of the 2022 general election.

According to Mutua, the move is intended to protect citizens from vile messages from political leaders intended to divide and incite them. He also warned media firms not to be used by politicians to air messages that may incite or offend others.

He went on to say that the government will not hesitate to remove any videos shared on social media by political leaders that incite people or advocate for violence.

This is after the government noticed that one way the politicians use to cite citizens is through the use of social media.

Furthermore, the government has stated that those who incite hatred among the people during political campaigns will face the full force of the law.
