President William Ruto on Wednesday broke his silence over the ongoing LGBTQ debate.
Ruto said he will not allow the country to head in that direction as Kenya had values that need to be respected.
“We respect the Court but… I will not allow it in Kenya. We have our culture and traditions, we respect our constitution and all our religions,” he said.
Ruto noted that the government did not support calls to legalise the Lesbian Gay Transgender and Queers (LGBTQ) community in Kenya.
"We can’t travel the road of women marrying women or men marrying men. That will not happen under my watch,” he added.
Ruto’s Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua condemned the Supreme Court ruling that allowed LGBTQ+ members to register an NGO in Kenya.
Gachagua said that LGBTQ is part of Satanic beliefs.
“Those are satanic beliefs, and we do not want them. That contradicts what we believe,” he noted.
The DP further highlighted that the President of Kenya himself was God-fearing.
“President Ruto is God-fearing, he’s a man of faith, and he will do what needs to be done. In any case, we have our traditions and customs and what they are suggesting is repugnant to morality and our way of life,” he added.
