Socialite EZEKIEL MUTUA will hang himself after reading this! NJOKI CHEGE fries him badly00:00
... busy taking pictures of his irregular diplomatic passport and signing off his Facebook posts with “Praise be to God”.
Mutua is indubitably not public service material. He lacks the grit and emotional intelligence necessary for a man entrusted with one of Kenya’s youngest industries (film).
He is a PR-driven character, a drama queen and an amateur bon vivant who is occupied with the trappings of public office.
He busks and thrives in the attention that comes from trending on Twitter and deserves to be on the public service scrapheap.
But his grip and so-called power is receding faster than his hairline. His exhibitionism has cost him the diplomatic passport and on behalf of Kenyans, I would like to commend the immigration department for acting swiftly and withdrawing his undeserved passport.
Kenyans have more pressing matters to attend to rather than listen to a man who has been accused of withholding TV sets meant for awarding exceptional journalists (he claims the sets were returned to the suppliers, Samsung, where the winners were supposed to collect them). This ignominious public display of Mutua must stop.
If you are Mutua’s friend, please translate this for him to Kiswahili. You are 49, not 19. It is time to drop the theatrics and act like a man your age. Apologise to long-suffering Kenyans who have stomached your antics on social media.
Telling us about your going to San Francisco, where gay rights first took root before spreading to the rest of the US and the world, the very same rights you scorn here at home, smacks of hypocrisy.
As you sign off today’s Facebook post with “Praise be to God!” I suggest you join a prosperity gospel church near you because I think you would be a perfect fit.
