In a statement from the KFCB boss, the movie will not be played in Kenya as it promotes same-sex marriage.
He continued by saying that the country is God-fearing and value marriage of two people from the opposite gender.
“The film is worse than the ones we have banned in the past as it has scenes involving children in homosexual practices and openly attempts to legitimize same-sex marriage.
Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya. Further, Kenya is a God-fearing nation which places a great premium on family, an institution derived from a union between two people of the opposite gender.
Any attempt to introduce foreign films that defy our culture and morality will be resisted with the force of the law.
Following the ban, the film shall not be distributed, broadcasted, exhibited or even held in possession within the Kenyan territory. Those who want to consume such content can go and watch it in India where the film was done or any other country where homosexuality is permissible.
Kenya will not be the dumping ground for all manner of filth that seeks to destroy the institution of family and our cultural identity.”
