President of Kenya stated that as long as he rules LGBT rights won’t be discussed in the country


Uhuru Kenyatta, who has been President of the African country for five years, claims that he personally is not ready to accept homosexuality and he does not believe this issue to be important for the country and agreeable in Kenyan society. Sharing his views with CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour, the leader said that he wanted to be “very clear” that under his rule LGBT rights are not to be put in question. The journalist said that the President was getting in trouble saying so, because LGBT Kenyans do exist and their rights for privacy, equ8ality and safety are no less important than the rights of straight Kenyans. To this Mr. Kenyatta replied: “In years to come, possibly long after I’m President, who knows, maybe this will be the point that our society will want to freely and openly discuss those issues. I have to be honest with you. That is the position we have maintained. These are the laws that we have. And those laws are supported 100% by 99% of the Kenyan people, irregardless of where they come from. Their freedoms must be taken into the entire context of society”.
