Caroline Mutoko has over the years, build her name as a brand that’s quite unspoken on the local issues that no one dares to discuss. In her YouTube Channel she weekly uploads videos, of current situations where she pours her two cents.

Recently the media personality seems to have a problem with Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB). Mutoko called out on the board for being corrupt and money oriented, to the point of foreign producers opting for other countries to produce Kenya oriented films.

Caroline uploaded another video, in which she challenges the KFCB chairman, to ensure he redeems back the glory of Kenyan films. Ezekiel Mutua didn’t take the sentiments kindly as he posted a harsh reply to Mutoko on his Facebook page that read;

“Our standards as Kenyans are so low that Caroline Mutoko and Mutahi Ngunyi are actually celebrated opinion shapers. Yet, theirs is pathetic, debilitating armchair journalism that adds zero value to the national development agenda. For now let me deal with Caroline and her weekly rantings about the film industry in Kenya. Please get some basics right madam: KFCB is the regulator of the film industry. KFC markets Kenya as a preferred filming destination. Chris Foot, of whom you speak with such adoration, is actually the one to respond to your questions about movies being taken away from Kenya. I will respond to the rest of the inaccuracies later, but it hurts to see a journalist of Mutoko’s calibre openly mislead the public. Well, there is a silver lining though: Ezekiel Mutua and KFCB have brought the film discourse to the fore. So much so that the failure of other institutions is blamed on us. We have stood our ground about the need to clean the airwaves and bring sanity back on our screens. People like Mutoko can’t be part of this crusade and they are out to sabotage it, through sideshows, because that’s how they made their money – by corrupting moral values of our society through obscene sex talk radio shows during the watershed period. There is so much I can say about Mutoko’s tenure at Kiss 100 and how she set the wrong agenda for obscenity and vulgarity on our airwaves, but the less said the better. Suffice it to say that the worst threat to media freedom is not Government; it’s unprofessional journalists who play god with their platforms to malign their subjects. Mutoko’s clips fall short of the basic tenets of journalism – accuracy, objectivity and fairness!.”
