Kenya Film Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua came under attack once again on Thursday, after what was interpreted as ‘overreaching his mandate’.

Tasked with rating movies and regulating their distribution, Mutua extended his job description to determining the parties Kenyans can and cannot have.

Apparently, there was this lesbian hook-up party that was to take place this Saturday at Juniper Kitchen, Muthangari road, Westlands. Advance tickets were going for Sh1000 and Sh1500 at the gate.

The poster was doing rounds on social media this week.

Yesterday on his Facebook page, Mutua applied the brakes on what he called a ‘lesbian orgy’.

This was his post.

KFCB BANS “GIRLS ONLY” PARTY
We wish to bring to the attention of the members of the public that this lesbian hook-up party has been banned by the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) and will therefore not take place. Any breach will be met with the full force of the law.

The owners of the premises have denied ever organizing the event or generating the poster being circulated online. The Board has reported the matter to the police for further investigation. The owners of the premises are fully cooperative.

Bearing one of the variations of the Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT), the so called colours of pride, the notice suggests that attendees will be lesbians. The use of “Girls Only” further implies that that the party will be an orgy of lesbians. Like in the case of the foiled Project X, the Board is privy to information that there will be filming of pornograhic content during the orgy.

The Constitution of Kenya 2010, Article 45 outlaws and criminalizes homosexuality. Section 181 of the Penal Code prohibits the distribution and exhibition of indecent content.

In light of the foregoing and in order to uphold the law, public decency and morality, the Board has banned the party.

Any member of the public with information regarding this or any other matter related to the work of the Board can reach us through our hotline number 0711222220
