Kenya films and classification board(KFCB) CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua has lashed out on twitter after the High court in Nairobi lifted the ban on ‘Rafiki’ a movie depicting the love story between two ladies.

According to the self declared ‘moral police’, homosexuality should not be used to depict Kenyan culture because that was not our way of life.

He openly said that the board would contravene the court order and not allow any public theatre to show the film without its permission.

Ezekiel Mutua openly castigated the Non governmental organizations that he said were using gay content as a tool to market Kenya’s film industry.

He also said that only insane people would derive pleasure from watching girls have sex with girls .

Rafiki by Wanuri was the first Kenyan movie that premiered at the Cannes film Festival  even after being banned in Kenya. They wanted to present the film for nomination at the Oscars but the ban by KFCB was an impediment.
