President Dr. William Ruto has come out to make his stand known after the recent supreme court ruling over LGBT.
The President said Kenya is a country that has it’s own customs and traditions that are followed.
“Our religion doesn’t allow us to support LGBTQ,” Ruto said.
The president however, told Kenyans not to worry about LGBTQ. Adding that it will happen elsewhere and not in Kenya.
Ruto is appealing to all religious leaders to stand steadfast and teach our kids and people not to lose our culture and traditions.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua also agreed with the president sentiments.
“LGBT is against what we believe in. It is immoral and goes against our way of life,” said Rigathi.
Earlier this week the supreme court ruled that the LGBT had a right to form an association. That denying the LGBT members their freedom of association was an infringement of their rights. The judges ruled that the community had a right to be registered as a Non Governmental Organization. However,the judgment said homosexuality is still illegally in Kenya.
The supreme court judgment has received mixed reaction from Kenyans majority of them rejecting the decision.
