Acting CEO of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Christopher Wambua says all films containing LGBTQ+ content are outlawed in the country as well as material promoting same-sex relationships and marriages.

Speaking on Friday in an interview with Spice FM, Wambua said the Kenyan constitution does not give a green light for homosexual or lesbian relationships and any content promoting such is banned within the country’s borders.

“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.

The acting KFCB boss went ahead to explain the move will also impact partnerships outside Kenya and have restricted viewership of LGBTQ material within the country.
