Ezekial Mutua seeks to shut down all Facebook users posting fake news

Kenya news, 

Moral policeman Ezekiel Mutua has launched a fresh attack on social media accounts using pseudonyms to spread fake news.

Mr Mutua on Wednesday said he is actually working on a proposed law in which will bar the use of fake Facebook names along with accounts to malign different people’s reputation.

“To deal with the spectre of fake news, we are proposing a law in which will bar people coming from using fake names along with pseudonym. If you are not into any mischief why do you want to have a fake Facebook account?”

He added: “If you must give your true identity to open an M-Pesa account, why should you hide behind anonymity to operate a Facebook account to insult people?”

The Kenya Films Classification Board chief executive received a multitude of support for the proposal.

However a few were of a different opinion.
