A ban has been lifted on Rafiki a film about lesbian love. This follows the film being shown at the Cannes Film Festival. The ban was lifted just for seven days to allow the film to be submitted for the Oscars.
The ban was imposed in April to deter promoting homosexuality which is illegal in Kenya.
The judge ruled that the film could be shown to willing adults. She said she was “not convinced that Kenya is such a weak society that its moral foundation will be shaken by seeing such a film”
Kenya has overturned a ban on Rafiki, a film about a lesbian love affair and the first ever move from the country to be shown at the Cannes film festival.
