Google Kenya will not remove a video from YouTube. Kenya asked Google to take the video offline because it showed gay couples and gay Kenyan public figures. The band Art Attack sings the song. Kenya says the video is bad and that homosexuality is "unnatural". Kenyan homosexuals can be put in prison for up to 14 years.

The video is popular. It has been seen 140,000 times. Kenya's government said: "We have written to Google to remove the video…We expect they will do it." Google said it looks at government removal requests when it receives them. It says it follows its "philosophy on…freedom of expression".
