Nairobi - The Kenya Film and Classification Board has banned the much anticipated movie 50 shades of grey in the country.
The Board said in a statement Tuesday that the film was considered too grave to be viewed and distributed in the country and warned persons against either showing or selling it.
" The Board wishes to inform the public, film operators and stakeholders that the film, 50 Shades of Grey has been RESTRICTED," it said in a statement.
The movie was set to be officially released in cinemas in the country over the Valentines Day weekend.
It is not the first movie that has been banned by the board, with the 'Wolf of Wall Street' also banned last year after it was declared persona non grata.
The movie has also been banned in other countries such as Malaysia who have equated it to pornography.
