The Kenya Film Classification Board has banned 50 Shades of Grey, the much-awaited erotic movie, which will hit big screens in major cities across the globe on Valentine’s Day.

“The board wishes to inform the public, film operators and stakeholders that the film, 50 Shades of Grey has been restricted. It should not be screened or distributed to the public,” a statement from the board said.

The film is an adaption of the erotic romantic trilogy novels Fifty Shades by British author E.L James.

The novels are notable for their explicit and erotic scenes that feature elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism (BDSM).
