Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua on Tuesday, April 13 came to the rescue of Rev Lucy Natasha who was under fire for having tattoos.
On the aforementioned date, the preacher received the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine and exposed her arm tattoos while sharing photos when receiving the jab.
“Together with my Pastoral team, I took the COVID – 19 AstraZeneca vaccine at RFH Health Care in adherence to Government and Medical recommendations for clergy and frontline workers as we combine our efforts in overcoming this global pandemic. This too will pass,” wrote Natasha.
The tattoos sparked outrage on social media with netizens criticising the preacher as they point out Bible verses that are against tattoos.
However, others defended the preacher amomg them the KFCB boss who challenged Natasha to ignore the critics and continue preaching the gospel.
He noted that with, or without a tattoo people will still talk.
“Rev. Lucy Natasha, preach on and turn your back to the critics, sceptics and nay sayers. People will always talk tattoo or no tattoo. Shine on for the Lord and reach out to souls. There’s nothing you can do to please everyone,” wrote Mutua.
The preacher quickly responded saying;
“Thanks @EzekielMutua for the words of encouragement and much humbled touching lives and reaching our generation with the message of hope and faith in God.”
