Governor Sonko counters KFCB boss Mutua on viral billboard with sexual slang

Images of a billboard containing some explicit sexual slag in Nairobi created buzz on the interwebs yesterday.

The billboard, according to the now-viral photos, it is seen inscribed with a word which in slang loosely alludes to sexual intercourse. The images prompted Nairobi governor Mike Sonko to react and verify the claims that there was such a billboard in the city. He took to social media stating, “I have personally sent my officers to confirm whether the billboard bearing the sexual slang TUMEKUDINYA exists. This is what we found out…”

The photos, as it turns out, were photoshopped as the particular billboard did not exist. This was confirmed after the Governor sent his staff to the scene where the poster was alleged to have been erected and found a different message altogether.

According to photos and videos posted by the county boss on his Facebook page, the billboard in question actually contains the word ‘Tumekudunga’; which loosely translates to “we have given you…”

The images caught even the attention of Kenya Films and Classifications Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua who rebuked it saying “in the name of creativity, advertisers are sexualizing everything under the sun.”

The moral police, further called on the county government officials who licensed the billboard to revoke it immediately, adding “this is unacceptable.”

This is not the first time that Mr. Mutua has called for the banning of certain adverts in the country. In 2018 the KFCB boss said he had flagged the Fresh Fri advertisement for using lustful language and being sexually suggestive. The Marie Stopes advertisement airing on the radio was banned as its message clearly promotes abortion contrary to Article 26 (4) of the Constitution of Kenya.
