This followed a ruling made in 2013 by lower courts to deny members of the community in Kenya to register an NGO for the advancement of their rights.
Speaking at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC), Nairobi, during the re-launch of the Women Enterprise Fund on Thursday, President Ruto said he respects the apex court’s decision but insisted that Kenya’s values and religion do not allow same-sex relationships.
Ruto, who had earlier said that there will be no room for homosexuality in Kenya, reiterated his stance saying, “We have Kenyan law, we have Kenyan constitution, we have our tradition, customs; we will continue to respect other people’s customs as they respect our customs and traditions.”
He told the American network that Kenya respects everybody and what they believe in, and that “We also have what we believe in and we expect to be respected for that too.”
