Inter-religious leaders want the government to outline measures it has put in place to block proliferation of LGBTQ activities in learning institutions
The leaders drawn from both the Christian and Muslim faiths say they will petition parliament to summon the Education, Gender, Foreign Affairs, Labour and Social Protection, and the Inspector General of Police to explain dockets on the matter.
Speaking in Nairobi the chairman of the Kenya Christian Professional forum Charles Kanjama has demanded the various cabinet secretaries to define certain terminologies that should guide Kenyans regarding sexuality.
”The ministry of Health’s position on the definition of sexual health and rights vis a vis the WHO definitions and agenda. The proliferation of foreign actor funding and lobbying on LGBTQ matters. The Ministry of Labor and social protections plans to safeguard the family from
such erosive influences. Enforcing the Penal Code provisions, including Sections 162, 163 & 165 of the Penal Code that prohibit homosexual conduct in Kenya.”
This as the men of cloth have urged parliament to Fast track the discussion and passage of the Family Protection Bill sponsored by Kaluma dubbed the The Kaluma bill and reject the proposed de-criminalization Bill by the NCAJ and only amend the Penal Code in a manner that gives life to the Constitution rather than suffocate it.
”Fast tracks the discussion and passage of the Family Protection Bill sponsored by Hon.
Peter Opondo Kaluma- The Kaluma Bill. Rejects in toto the proposed decriminalization Bill by the NCAJ and only amend the Penal Code in a manner that gives life to the Constitution rather than suffocate it. The Penal Code Amendment Bill No. 56 of 2022 is one perfect example of how such an amendment should be done.”
