Two members of staff at an LGBT+ organisation in Mombasa, Kenya, were arrested after police received a “tip off” about the non-profit organization ‘promoting the inappropriate LGBT activity’ and ‘encouraging the youth to join it’. According to the reports from Nairobi News two people were arrested in relation with the incident. Homosexuality is a crime in the African country for both men and women.Men who are convicted of having gay sex in Kenya could be sentenced to up to 14 years in prison for the offence. Other sexual practices between men are punished by up to five years in prison. Transgender people also suffer discrimination in Kenya, where society is highly conservative and negative views about the LGBT+ community are widespread.
