The much trending song by Isaiah featuring Waharaka has been banned by the Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) for being inciteful .
While addressing the media on Monday after an uproar on social media complaining about the inciteful song titled “Ikamba” the KFCB Chief Executive Officer, Ezekiel Mutua also ordered that anyone involved in its production be arrested immediately.
Mutual further requested that the said song should not be aired adding that anyone caught airing the song which he said was distasteful should also be arrested.
“The song is is in bad taste as it generalizes the acts of a few individuals to malign-and deride a whole community in the most foul language. Its a primitive piece of art and contravenes the provision of article 33 of the constitution on freedom of expression and that it that amounts to incitement to violence and hate speech,” Mutua said.
The song has been said to be an attack on the Kamba community,specifically the Kitui County governor Charity Ngilu after the charcoal and sand harvesting ban effected in the county led to burning of several vehicles.
