"Hatukubali" Angry Kenyans Tell Off Atheists And Gay Community After Demanding Back Gay Film

Recently, the Kenya Films and Classification Board banned a movie called 'I am Samuel' alleging that it promoted gay rights. The organization called Atheists in Kenya (AIK) were not happy with the move and their boss Harrison Mumia said that the move by the government was depriving Kenyans the right to narrative diversity.

He added that the ban shows that Kenya is an anti-gay and lesbian community. Mumia added that digitalization has changed the African culture, and the creation and dissemination of content.

Sources say the movie shows two gay men doing a religious wedding and KFCB has termed it blasphemous.

On Thursday, KFCB boss Chris Wambua said that the movie violates Article 165 of the penal code that is against homosexuality. He added that the movie was trying to show that the elderly community that was against homosexuality were slowly accepting it.

Kenyans thronged the comments section telling off the AIK boss and the LGBTQ community.
