What the Kenyan constitution says about LGBTQ

A few days after the Supreme Court of Kenya acknowledged rights defending members of LGBTQ ,most citizens are concerned of what's written in the constitution .This is because Kenya being an African and religious country cases of homosexuality are not only against God but also the cherished African norms.

The court's decision has enraged most leaders and citizens calling the act unholy and ungodly.Church leaders have asked the court to reconsider its decision which may cost future generations.

The court in its ruling had stated that although gaysim is illegal in Kenya, its members have freedom of association. The court further said that LGBTQ was now legal and could register on its will.

However, according to the constitution,sodomy is a felony and can be punished by 14years imprisonment according to section 165 of Kenyan constitution.However, the constitution doesn't offer a punishment for lesbianism.This doesn't make it legal as the constitution does not recognise marriages of members of the same gender.
