Ezekiel Mutua, Kenya's "moral policeman", has been bragging on Facebook about being granted a diplomatic visa to enter north America.

The chief of the Kenya Film Classification Board for less than a year, Mutua is known for being anti-LGBTQIA+ as well as against atheists. So far, he's worked to ban tv ads, as well as parties promoted via social media. He's also claimed to have a "memorandum of understanding" with Google to alter and block certain search results.


Traveling to California to attend the Google-organised Web Rangers Summit, a convention focused on online safety.

“Because of my stand on moral values, including the banning of content promoting LGBT and Atheists culture in Kenya, someone wrote in a local daily that I will never get visa to the US.” Mutua wrote on Facebook.

“Well, I not only got it but it came on a Diplomatic Passport and I didn’t even have to go to the Embassy for biometrics or pay the visa application fee.

“America here we come. . .TO GOD BE THE GLORY!”

The post has since been deleted, but a screenshot of Mutua's post is below:
