- The bill seeks to criminalize homosexuality, same-sex marriages, and LGBTQ behaviors.
- The bill further prohibits adoption by homosexuals and proscribes sex acts on animals.
Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma has submitted a family protection bill to Parliament.
The bill seeks to criminalize homosexuality, same-sex marriages, and LGBTQ behaviors.
In a statement, Kaluma said that if the bill is passed into law, it will criminalise the promotion, recruitment, and funding of homosexuality and LGBTQ.
"I have submitted the Family Protection Bill to the National Assembly. It seeks to ban comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in Pre-primary, primary and secondary schools education programs," he said.
Kaluma wants sexual health and sexual health rights and education banned.
The bill if passed will uphold the prior rights of parents and guardians to their children’s education.
It will reassert the rights of parents to be informed and to consent to sexuality education, and abortion procedures involving their children.
According to Kaluma, the bill defines sex as the biological state of being male or female observed and assigned at birth.
The MP also wants the state to limit rights to assembly, demonstration, association, expression, belief, privacy, and employment in childcare institutions in respect of homosexual convicts.
The bill further prohibits adoption by homosexuals and proscribes sex acts on animals.
The legislator said the bill if passed will have the penalty imposed under the proposed Act ranges from the imprisonment of at least 10 years to death.
Kaluma has since maintained that homosexuals should be punished because it is illegal in Kenya.
