The Kenya Film Classification Board Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, has urged aspiring leaders to champion for moral values in their various positions and help reverse the wave of immorality in Kenya.
According to Dr. Mutua, the fight against moral decadence is a collective responsibility and everyone has to get involved including religious leaders and society as a whole.
Speaking at the All Saints Cathedral, Valley Road in Nairobi on Wednesday 17th February, 2021 during a two-day retreat organized by the Eagles Leadership Network (ELN), Dr. Mutua reiterated on the Board’s commitment to forge partnerships with like-minded private and public organizations to rally for promotion of Kenya’s culture, moral values as well as protection of children from exposure to harmful content.
While giving a Keynote address on the topic: ‘The Critical Need for Ethical Statesmen in the Political Arena, in Kenya and Africa as a Whole, the Board’s CEO, noted the key role of political and religious leaders in shaping values and norms, urging them to exhibit integrity and accountability as they pursue various leadership positions.
“Leaders ought to have the natural ability to respond to the needs of the society, not because of the benefits, but for the change and solutions that their leadership brings to the people,” Dr. Mutua said.
The ELN brings together Christian leaders from across the political divide all over Kenya to pray and discuss strategies of promoting ethics and political hygiene. It also seeks to equip upcoming leaders in the areas of leadership, integrity and good governance and also offers training on programs based primarily on Biblical principles.
