A section of MPs, women representatives, and senators from the Lower Eastern region in collaboration with the Kenya Films Classification Board (KFCB) Thursday launched a song sensitizing Kenyans on Corona virus.
The ceremony was held at the newly renovated Nairobi Cinema and the Chief guest Kalonzo Musyoka was represented by Kathiani MP Robert Mbui and deputized by Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka.
Lusaka said the initiative was a rare show of unity which he asked all leaders from different parts of the country to copy the same. He called for leaders to exercise caution before uttering any remarks.
Speaking at the function KFCB CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua lauded Kitui Senator Enoch Kiio Wambua for coming up with the initiative and aligning MPs to compose a song that touches the mandate of KFCB.
“I told him if you can do it senator get the song going. I didn’t participate in the song myself but when I saw the song and saw so many MPs. For example, i didn’t know Patrick Makau can sing because Mheshimiwa Makau and I have a history that I will not mention here. We used to travel the world and preach the gospel. When I saw him here it confirmed to me that he is a man of God. ” the KFCB CEO said.
“MPs came together and instead of hurling insulting and accusing the government and complaining like it is the nature of politicians ( i am very to say). You have proved us wrong, You have decided to give us hope…It made me believe that our campaign for clean content is gaining momentum and bearing fruit.” Mutua added.
Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua said what happened in 1985 during Ethiopia’s grate famine inspired him when Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson wrote the song we are the world.
Other leaders at the function included; Charles Nguna of Mwingi west, Makali Mulu Kitui central, Eng. Paul Nzengu of Mwingi North, Benson Mulu of Kitui Central, Patrick Makau of Mavoko, Edith Nyenze of Kitui west, Rachael Nyamai of Kitui south, Eng. Thadeus Nzambia of Kilome, Irene Kasalu Kitui Women rep, and Joshua Mwalyo MP Masinga.
