Kenya bans gay rights video
24 February 2016, 13:02
Nairobi - The Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) has blocked Same Love (remix), a gay music video that was uploaded on Youtube by Art Attack band last week.
In a statement released Tuesday, KFCB said the video promotes same sex marriage, contrary to the Kenyan constitution.
Star further reports that Art Attack band did not obtain appropriate
license to distribute the video, with the KFCB chair asking Kenyans not to allow such content to turn the country into modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah.
In Kenya, homosexuality is still illegal.

Distribution and exhibition of inappropriate content that is likely to corrupt moral
values of youth and children is also illegal and attracts a sentence of two years in prison.
KFCB said the Board has already written to Google asking them to block the video from streaming in Kenya.
However, the Google Kenya communications manager Dorothy Ooko told Business Daily that they have not yet received such a request but encouraged Kenyans to flag any content they deem inappropriate.
