He said this in reference to the new US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's appointment and subsequent swearing into President Biden's cabinet as an open gay.Prof Makau Mutua.

However, this did not sink well into the ever alert online Kenyan community. In equal measures they supported while others confidently dismissed the professor's call for being evil, against Biblical standards and the society norms. Check out some of the responses sampled out of the argument.

"You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22. Whatever translation of the Bible you choose to read, the practice of homosexuality in the eyes of God is a sin. It is detestable and an abomination in the eyes of the Lord."Kenyans responses.
"When the Kabaka in Uganda a few centuries ago tried to have sex with young men, they stood their ground, said no and stood their Christian values. Today, they are the Uganda Martyrs. Homosexuality is not our culture!"
"Prof, if it's beautiful and you want it to Kenya then why don't lead as an example, get yourself a husband and bring him to Kenya. Don't preach water to us while you are drinking wine."
