Kenya Gay rights

President Uhuru Kenyatta attended an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where he was asked about the legality of the Gay rights in Kenya.

President Uhuru admitted that homosexuality is not an issue of human rights in Kenya but rather an issue of our own cultural beliefs.

He stated that will not engage in an issue that is not important to Kenyans at the moment since the society beliefs’ and values do not support the culture. He stated that this is currently is a non- issue to him as the leader of the country because Kenyans are not willing to engage in the matter at the moment.

The president insisted that no Kenyan should be mistreated or abused in any way since they are all protected by the law.

However, members of the LGBT Community should put into context the society which they live in and abide by the acceptable norms of our country.

He admits that Kenyans may have to discuss about this at some point in the future when they become more open to engage in discussions over the matter.
