Ezekiel Mutua has been jobless since August 2021 when KFCB kicked him out, the moral cop is back but to a less influential position.
Mutua fell from grace to grass after Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) dismissed him from his position as its CEO.
The moral cop moved to court last year challenging the decision by the Board to fire him from his position and replace him with an acting CEO pending the appointment of a new substantive CEO.
KFCB appointed Christopher Wambua to act as its chief executive officer to replace Mutua in August last year.
However, on 2nd February 2022 Employment and Labour Relation Court Judge Maureen Onyango dismissed his application. She ruled that the Board erred in appointing him for a further five years when he had exhausted two terms of three years each.
“Furthermore, appointing him for a term of five years is in contravention of Mwongozo and the Board’s HR Manual. Therefore, the letter of appointment dated 14th July 2021 appointing him is null and void,” the judge ruled.
Fast forward to March 2022, Ezekiel Mutua has been appointed new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) effective 25th March 2022.
“The Board of Directors of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ezekiel Mutua as its Chief Executive Officer, effective Friday 25th March 2022.” Said MCSK
Mutua’s appointment follows a very competitive interview process that saw him emerge top among other candidates who had been interviewed for the position.
The former moral cop attracted criticisms and praise alike during his tenure as KFCP CEO. One of his biggest critic is Eric Omondi whom he clashed with severally.
