Kenya’s First Lady Rachel Ruto has declared national prayers against hom@s@xuality in the country, saying the family unit was under attack.
Mrs Ruto said the country cannot condone the Supreme Court ruling last month that upheld the L_G_B_T_Q community’s right of association.
“We should not even try to talk about L_G_T_B_Q. This is a conversation we should not even have in our country because accepting it is like throwing our morals into the dustbin,” the first lady said on Sunday.
Hom@s@xuality remains criminalised in Kenya.
The Supreme Court ruled that refusal to allow the L_G_B_T community to register lobby groups in Kenya would would violate their right to association, as provided in the Kenyan constitution.
