Netizens differ with Ms Monroe
Socialite cum business woman Huddah Monroe has landed in trouble with a section of her Instagram followers after suggesting that Alcohol Billboards should be banned in Nairobi.
In a series of posts, Ms Monroe expressed displeasure in the number of billboards erected in Nairobi to promote different brands of Alcohol, yet people can’t even talk about safe sex openly.
She pointed out that it’s high time, the County government under the leadership of Governor Mike Sonko start to regulate what goes on the billboards.
Stop advertising alcohol on billboards
“Stop advertising alcohol on billboards! Everywhere in Nairobi is alcohol billboards and cigarettes ads, they should be banned. Stop glorifying bad things. Let our Kids get to 18 and decide their fate. I drive around all I see is alcohol. It’s just on your face. Imagine our kids, they don’t drive, they pay attention. Sonko needs to rip and burn all alcohol and cigarette billboards to the ground” wrote Huddah.
She added that, the society should start advocating for safe sex;
“Let’s promote more Condom billboards. Why is that banned? Why is safe sex not a discussion? Why are we scared to talk about sex in this bedroom called Nairobi? Next to an alcohol billboard should be a condom billboard. Condom Ads should be everywhere” said Ms Monroe.
However, her suggestions were received with mixed reactions, with a section arguing that she was biased with her statements, while others lauded her for speaking out.
