Kenya Film and classification board Chairman Ezekiel Mutua has slammed award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o for “laughing” at Najib Balala.
In statement, Ezekiel said that Lupita’s remarks about Balala was totally inappropriate and uncalled for.
“She should have picked her phone and just say ‘Waziri, I am here. I am ready to serve my country.’
“ Being a global icon should come with some loyalty to your country and respect for elders!,” said Mutua.
Lupita had hit back on Kenya tourist Minister Najib Balala after alleging that the ministry has been looking for her for five years without success.
Balala was trying to respond to millions of Kenyans who questioned him after he chose British Model Naomi Campbell to be the Magical Kenya International Tourism ambassador.
