Uhuru Speaks Out Again on Homosexuality

  • President Uhuru Kenyatta has come out to say that he does not support the persecution of any individual with regard to their sexual orientation.

    In an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria, Kenyatta affirmed that he did not say that gay people did not have rights but majority of Kenyans did not wish to legalize homosexuality.

    “You know we won't allow people to take the law into their own hands and harass them, no we won't. Every individual has a right to be protected by the law and that is stated in our constitution, all right.” said Kenyatta.

    Responding to the question of when homosexuality will be legalized, the President said that the Kenyan society did not accept some values therefore it could not happen overnight.

    “And this is where I am saying we have to get synergies. You’re not going to create the United States or Great Britain or the Netherlands in Kenya, or in Nigeria or Senegal overnight. We have to understand that these are processes and they take time,”expressed Uhuru.

    In July, Kenyatta told visiting US President Barack Obama that gay-ism was a non-issue adding that Kenyans had more pressing issues that they wanted addressed.
