A government official and religious leaders have called for the banning of toy guns, which they argue socialise children to violence.

The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) and the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya (CIPK) argue that toy guns pose a danger to minors by instilling violence in them.

KFCB Chief Executive Ezekiel Mutua said children with toy guns can be brainwashed into terrorism.

“Why should a child have a gun? What are we teaching them? Do you want them to become terrorists? We must ban them. A toy gun is not good for our children instead buy for them books, computers or a football so that they may become the next Victor Wanyama,” said Dr Mutua.

BAN VIDEO GAMES

The moral policeman said video games with violence and action packed wars should also be banned.

“We are socializing children to violence and crime. Parents should guard what their children are watching in the movies. Computer games where people are shot dead and houses torched are not good,” he insisted.

He made the remarks after meeting with religious leaders at the Kenya School of Government in Mombasa on Saturday.

Dr Mutua at the same time said no foreign filmmakers will be allowed to take make films in Kenya without a license from the  agency.

He said the foreign filmmakers endanger national security and denying licensed local agents’ money.

“They could be terrorists. How do we know they have good intentions yet they lack filming license. We have reports of people filming sex movies at the Coast, they must be arrested. We must rate and classify the movie before it is aired. Send us the synopsis beforehand,” said Dr Mutua.

ERODE MORAL CULTURE

“Don’t allow foreigners and tourists to erode our moral culture by making sex films with our children, arrest them. Kenya should not be the dumping ground,” he insisted.

Dr Mutua said he recently watched a film in France dubbed ‘Paradise Lost’ showcasing Kenya enhancing sex beach boys tourism.

“They had told us it’s a film promoting activities in our beaches. But I was surprised to see it showing how Kenya is renowned for beach sex tourism. They are destroying our image,” Dr Mutua said.

On his part CIPK Organizing Secretary Sheikh Mohamed Khalifa urged police to deal with perpetrators.

“I applaud a ward representative in Kilifi County who is set to table a motion banning homosexuality and gayism. We need such leaders not others here who are planning to lift the ban on shisha,” said Sheikh Khalifa.
