Late last year, Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga ordered the police to arrest all Homosexuals saying it goes against the African culture and the laws of nature, a position that was welcomed by Religious leaders but Gay activists condemned it saying that the precedent would worsen discrimination against them as a community.
Their exists so much hate for Homosexuality in Kenya and it is being crusaded mainly by politicians and Religious leaders.For example many Homosexuals operate secretly and even those sodomized fear to speak out because of social stigmatization
Due to this blanket condemnation on people's lifestyles, some people are now questioning the basis of pointing accusing fingers on one sin in society and remain silent about others such as corruption, Issues of Governance and Democracy, Rigging of elections, Nepotism, dictatorship and extra judicial killings yet these are also salient matters affecting our society today
Am wondering why the Anti-gay activists especially the religious leaders have not come out strongly to speak against these vices especially corruption that has made us stall for decades.
Am hoping that this year will see our politicians and religious leaders shift their energy and focus to things that directly affects the citizens and not people's lifestyles and choices
