, NAIROBI, Kenya Mar 11 — Police are searching, for questioning, those behind a Project X squared poster doing the rounds on social media.
The poster which glorifies sex, is similar to one which did the rounds around the same time last year and drew condemnation both from police and the Kenya Film Classification Board.
Both parties vowed that the highly publicised event would not take place under their watch and this year, KFCB CEO Ezekiel Mutua said, would be no different.
“The party comes a year after the Board stopped Project X, which aimed at luring teenagers, intoxicating them with drugs and then using them to produce pornographic films for sale outside the country. The Board has credible leads suggesting that the purpose of Project X2 is also part of a wider sex syndicate operated by foreign Non-Governmental Organisations in collaboration with local underlings, targeting children for use in the production of pornographic films for sale in foreign countries.
“It will be recalled that after KFCB stopped the Project X Party last year, some 200 youths attempted to stage a similar party in Lang’ata. But courtesy of the Police and Wananchi, the Board was able to foil it. The children were arrested and taken to Lang’ata Police Station, where they spent the night and released to their parents and guardians the following day. The Sudanese national, whose house was being used to host the party was arrested and charged in court.”
