We will not accept homosexuality, DP Ruto says
Deputy President William Ruto has said Africa will not accept any legislation aimed at legalising homosexuality.
Speaking at AIC Ziwani Church in Kamukunji Constituency, Nairobi on Sunday, Ruto said “homosexuality is against the plan of God” and should not be tolerated.
“God did not create man and woman so that men would marry men and women marry women.”
“We have heard that in the US they have allowed gay relations and other dirty things. I want to say as a Christian leader that we will defend our country Kenya, we will stand for our faith and our country,” he added.
Ruto also hit out at CORD leader Raila Odinga over his reported demands for the audit of funds given out in harambees by the DP and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
He said he would continue to donate funds in harambees despite demands by the ODM party leader for him and the president to account for the source of their funds.
Other leaders present at the event were Nominated Senator Beth Mugo, Starehe MP Maina Kamanda, Dagoretti MP Dennis Waweru and Embakasi Central MP John Ndirangu.
Ruto’s sentiments come days after Manyatta Member of Parliament John Muchiri made similar remarks while warning US President Barack Obama against advocating for homosexuality during his trip slated for July 24, 2015.
Muchiri said that America’s Supreme Court decision to allow same-sex marriage does not give a green light to Kenya to do the same.
The ruling made by the US Supreme Court stated that gay marriage is a legal right across the country, earning the gay community in the country a historic victory.
