COTU boss Francis Atwoli on 28th February evening reacted to latest supreme court's ruling paving way for the registration of LGBTQ community rights in the country, a move that has highly been opposed by leaders as well attorney general Justin Muturi.

Speaking during a funeral ceremony, Francis Atwoli seemed unimpressed with supreme court's ruling which might see LGBTQ community be registered as a legal group in Kenya.

Atwoli has therefore urged Members of parliament as well president William Ruto to formulate legislation outlawing the move, questioning the government's stance on supreme court's ruling.

" COTU SG Francis Atwoli condemns Supreme Court’s ruling on LGBTQ, urges Parliament to formulate legislation outlawing the movement", the report intimates.

" Lazima bunge yetu ikae kikao na iweze kusema hiyo haiwezi kufanyika hapa", he said.

Atwoli as well opined that kenyans should emulate neighboring countries like Uganda, Tanzania and western countries.

" Ukienda uganda Museveni amekataa, Tanzania President Samia Suluhu pia amekataa na hata nchi zote za western Africa", he added.

His bold sentiment on LGBTQ comes off after supreme court's ruling elicited sharp reactions from Kenyans as well as other top leaders in the country.

Apparently, legalizing LGBTQ community in the country is against the religion of Kenya and therefore such a move should highly be opposed as National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula did.
