Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr. Ezekiel Mutua has urged church leaders to be on the forefront in shaping the Society towards embracing character formation and treasuring morality.
Speaking during the 77th Graduation Ceremony of the Friends Theological College (FTC) Kaimosi on 19th October 2019, the CEO who was the Chief Guest reiterated that the church is the national conscience of the society, noting that all the vices that are being experienced in the society today have the foundation in the issues of morality.
“I came here today to challenge you that as you go out to serve, do not remain silent, you must join in the conversation about redeeming our society,” Dr. Mutua said.
The CEO urged the graduates to lead as an example in the society, adding that religion must be viewed as a vehicle that creates meanings and inspires hope in people.
“You have the high calling to create meaning for society though your paths lead in different directions as pastors in churches and chaplains in schools, hospitals, prisons and colleges. Your interactions with faithfuls must spring from the desire to have people strong on moral values and who esteem virtues,” he added.
Dr. Mutua reiterated that the Board is partnering with religious and learning institutions to champion for moral values and national aspirations with the aim of protecting children from exposure to harmful content.
