The advert, that has been doing rounds on Facebook and on Twitter with the caveat that only Kenyan ladies are invited, has been denounced as fake by the management of Serena Hotel.

The hotel on Wednesday confirmed that the alleged “White Men Only” party being advertised on social media was not scheduled to take place in their premises.

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) chief executive Ezekiel Mutua has confirmed that the board received complaints about the ‘White Men and Black Girls Only’ party and commenced investigations to establish the truth.

Writing on his Facebook wall, Mr Mutua said; “Such parties that promote racism or indecent behavior are outlawed by the board in line with the Film and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the laws of Kenya. The board is investigating reports of such illegal activities in certain affluent areas in Nairobi and Mombasa and we shall ensure that the law takes its cause.”

He also warned that strip clubs and other entertainment establishments that admit children into their premises will prosecuted.

Mr Mutua also announced that the board has banned disco matanga (open-air dance parties held after burials ) at the Coast and is working with local administrators to enforce the directive.
