Ezekiel Mutua sued for Sh8.5 million for banning ‘lesbian’ film

Here is trouble!

Illegal

They also argued that the Kenya Films Classification guidelines 2012 be declared illegal and be awarded Sh8.5 million compensation for projected sale from theatrical distribution of the film Rafiki and loss of sponsorship.

“If this matter is not certified urgent and heard on a priority basis, it would be rendered nugatory because Ms Kahiu’s film would be left out of the competition,” said Kahiu’s lawyers Waikwa Wanyoike and Sofia Rajab-Leteipan.

According to Nairobi News, in documents submitted in Court, they claimed that they submitted the original script and were granted a license by KFCB Chief Executive Officer Mutua in February last year.

Rafiki is a love story of two teenage girls who develop a romantic relationship, which is opposed by their families and community that was banned by the KFCB over claims that its content promoted lesbianism.
