Kenya: Christian Group Asks to Be Enjoined in Lesbian Case

A Christian organization, the Kenya Christian Professionals Forum (KCPF), has filed an application at the High Court requesting to be enjoined in a case on the banned Kenyan lesbian film 'Rafiki'.

This is after 'Rafiki' producer and director Ms Wanuri Kahiu jointly with a lobby group Creative Economy Working Group sued Kenya Classification Board (KFCB) and its chairman Ezekiel Mutua for banning the film in Kenya.

Ms Kahiu wants a compensation of Sh8.5 Million.

The Christian group, headed by lawyer Charles Kanjama, now wants to be part of the suit.

The group says it wants to be enjoined so as to help fight to protect the interest of the family as safeguarded in the Constitution.

"We are keen on the promotion of morality as protected by the Constitution being the fundamental unit of society. Hence (KCPF) is acting in its mandate to safeguard adherence to the law that out laws homosexuality," Mr Kanjama said.

KCPF is also enjoined as interested party in another ongoing homosexuality cases filed at the High Court and Court of Appeal.
