You Can Now Watch Rafiki! Ezekiel Mutua Is Humiliated By High Court

The High Court in Nairobi has temporarily lifted the ban imposed, by Kenya Film Classification Board, on Rafiki for seven days. During this time, the creators of Rafiki have been allowed to screen the film to willing adults.
Delivering his judgement, Justice Wilfrida Okwany brought to light the fact that many Kenyans have had to flee the country for going against the grain that is societal expectations.
The film had been banned by the Ezekiel Mutua led board for promoting lesbianism. The film is about two teenage girls who develop a romantic relationship despite being opposed by family and their community.
With this ruling in place, it means that Kenyans can finally watch the internationally loved film that they couldn't watch. Most importantly, this means that the film is now illegible for an Oscar nomination.
The director, writer and co-producer of the film, Ms Wanuri Kahiu sued the board because she couldn't submit the film as Kenya's entry to the Oscars in the Best Foreign Language Film category with the ban in place.
