HOMOPHOBIC: All movies with LGBTQ+ content illegal in Kenya - KFCB bans

All movies with LGBTQ+ content illegal in Kenya - KFCB. (Read More Here).

Speaking on Friday, Wambua said that Kenyan law does not allow LGBTQ+ content and relationships.

"As we rate and classify content, we also consider other applicable laws. If there is any content that normalizes, glorifies same-sex relationships, our position in Kenya has always been to restrict and not to broadcast, exhibit or distribute that kind of content within the borders of the country," he said in an interview with Spice FM.

Wambua added that signed partnerships outside Kenya have restricted the viewership of the content within the country.

KFCB said the film violated Article 165 of the Penal Code that outlaws homosexuality, as well as the provisions of the Films and Stage, Plays Act Capp 222 of the laws of Kenya. 

"For the avoidance of doubt, restricted in this case means that the film is prohibited from exhibition, distribution, possession or broadcasting within the Republic of Kenya," the Board emphasized.
