The Kenya Film Classification Board bans "pro-gay" kids cartoons on DSTV for promoting homosexuality

The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), has banned 6 alleged "as well as-gay" children cartoons going around for Nickelodeon (DStv 305) and Cartoon Network (DStv 301) and ordered MultiChoice to suddenly subside showing the cartoons upon DStv that is "normalizing, glamorizing or even glorifying homosexual behaviour" and damaging "relatives".
According to the censor board, the Nickelodeon cartoons from Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa), such as Loud House, The Legend of Korra and Hey Arnold, as quickly as the Cartoon Network shows Steven Universe, Adventure Time and Clarence from Turner Broadcasting have contravened classification guidelines.

The KFCB claims these 6 cartoons "are meant to introduce children to substitute behaviour".

The KFCB in a publication says these cartoons "are obnoxious and inappropriate material" and that it "targets children and seeks to impair their moral judgment upon the institution of relatives".

According to KFCB boss, Ezekiel Mutua, he said the board has written to Multichoice to rapidly decrease ventilation the cartoons.

"The board has written to MultiChoice, the owners of DStv, to cease with immediate effect the airing" of these shows.

 MultiChoice Africa in response to the KFCB ban, told Channel24 that it can't yet comment on the details but that the pay-TV provider learnt of the existence of from the KFCB letter and that MultiChoice Africa is "currently investigating the matters raised in the letter".
