Not in Kenya: Ruto weighs in on Supreme court ruling on gays and lesbians
President William Ruto has condemned the ruling by the Supreme Court on the formation of a lobby for gays and lesbians in Kenya.
The President said he will not allow the country to head in that direction.
Speaking on Thursday during the launch of the Women Enterprise Fund and the second product of the Hustler Fund at KICC, Ruto said Kenya is a religious country guided by morality.
“We respect the Court but… I will not allow it in Kenya,” he said.
“I cannot allow our women to get competition from men who chase after men.”
Lat week, the Supreme Court dismissed an appeal by the government to bar registration of gays and lesbians lobby groups, ending an 11-year legal battle by activists seeking the official registration of an LGBTQ+ organisation in Kenya.
The Apex court ruled that the refusal by the NGOs Coordination Board to register the lobby group would violate human rights based on sexual orientation.
