Video Of Ruto's Stand On Homosexuality Resurfaces Online Amid Supreme Court Controversial Ruling

On his official Twitter account, Gabriel Oguda uploaded a video that exposed Ruto's prior remarks on the subject of homosexuality. He asserted that he did so while acting as the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya at the time.

In the video, Ruto is heard declaring that Kenya is a religious nation and that homosexuality has no place there.

Wetangula claimed that the repercussions brought on by the right of association of the group labeled illegal could cause the majority verdict on the matter to weaken society's moral foundation.

Kenya is a secular state, yet the National Assembly Speaker criticized the judiciary's ruling, saying that because of the country's strong religious tradition, the Supreme Court should have stood up for the public's morals.

Kenya is a highly religious country. It is the responsibility of every person and/or public institution, including the judiciary, to uphold, defend, and safeguard public morals! The SC's announcement might have unforeseen and detrimental effects, he said.

This occurs shortly after Mr. Justice Justin Muturi announced his intention to appeal the decision, claiming that the matter required public input and was outside the purview of the legal system.

Muturi is asking for an advising opinion on the judgement, which has sparked outrage in evangelical circles since it is seen as setting a negative example for pedophiles and those who violate other norms.

A law that would condemn anyone convicted of practicing homosexuality and other unnatural sexual practices to life in prison is being sponsored by a member of parliament from Homabay Town.
