- On Sunday, President William Ruto said Attorney General Justin Muturi is expected to order a review of the decision.
- He said the review is aimed at weighing the ruling against the law of the land.
The Supreme Court on February 24, made a controversial ruling allowing the registration of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) associations.
The decision has continued to cause uproar as sections of leaders and Kenyans rally support to denounce the verdict.
The government has announced that it will seek a review of the apex court's ruling that permitted the LGBTQ to be registered as an association despite homosexuality being illegal in Kenya.
On Sunday, President William Ruto said Attorney General Justin Muturi is expected to order a review of the decision.
The President spoke while addressing an interdenominational thanksgiving service at Kapsabet Showground in Nandi County.
He said the review is aimed at weighing the ruling against the law of the land.
"Hii mambo ya LGBTQ, mimi nataka niwahakikishie hivi, tayari Attorney General, kwa niaba ya serikali anarudi kortini kuuliza ihakikishe hii mambo imefanyiwa review ndio tujue ukweli wa katiba ya Kenya iko sehemu gani," he said.
(I want to assure you that on this issue of LGBTQ, the AG, on behalf of the government, is going back to court to seek a review of the ruling so we can fully understand what the Constitution says the subject)
Sections 162 and 165 of the penal code forbids homosexual behaviour and prescribes a jail sentence of up to 14 years for those found guilty.
Ruto noted that the Constitution and Kenyan traditions and culture only allow opposite-sex relationships.
Article 45 (2) of the Constitution states that, "Every adult has the right to marry a person of the opposite sex, based on the free consent of the parties."
Ruto said the agenda that was being "forced" onto the country was not going to be accepted under the Constitution.
While making his stance on the court ruling known on March 2, Ruto said he will not allow the country to head in that direction as Kenya had values that needed to be respected.
"You know me very well, I'm a God-fearing man and whatever happened at the court, even if we respect the Court, our culture, values, Christianity and Islam cannot allow women to marry each other, or men to marry fellow men," he said.
