The Supreme Court of Kenya on Friday, February 24 ruled that the NGO Board’s decision to bar homosexuals from forming recognised groups is discriminatory.
The court stated that despite homosexuality being illegal in Kenya, members of the LGBTQ still have a right of association.
Clergy organisation under the House of Clergy Association has come out strongly to condemn supreme court ruling in favour of LGBTQ NGO Registration.
Speaking in Nairobi, a delegation led by Bishop Elizabeth Thuiya of the House of Clergy Association has condemned the ruling terming it as a dangerous precedent that could lead to the further erosion of Society’s moral fabric.
Bishop Thuiya has said that by allowing the registration of such an organisation, it’s a continuation of its insidious agenda of corrupting youths and undermining the traditional values of the nation.
” By allowing the registration of such an organisation, the court has effectively given the green light for the LGBTQ movement to continue its insidious agenda of corrupting our youth and undermining the traditional values that have made our nation great. ”
The Association has, however, called The President Dr. William Samoei Ruto to take a strong stance against this ruling, terming it as a nation if it has a duty to protect values by upholding the laws.
“We call on his Excellency, President Dr. William Ruto, to take a strong stance against this ruling and publicly denounce it for what it is – an attack on the very foundation of our society. As the leader of our great nation, it is his duty to protect our values and uphold the laws that govern us.”
Further, the Clergy Association has demanded the National Assembly to act in reversing the ruling and employ laws that will prevent further attempts promoting the LGBTQ agenda in society.
Finally, the Bishop Thuiya of the House of the Clergy Association has vowed to stand united in the condemnation of this ruling, and it’s committed to defending the moral values that is of promoting the community.
“We will not rest until this ruling is overturned and the LGBTQ agenda is dropped or relegated to the dustbin of history where it belongs.”
