Kenya’s First Lady Declares National Prayers Against LGBTQ

The first lady of Kenya has declared nationwide prayers against homosexuality across the country and denounce it as a threat to the family unit.

Rachel Ruto delivered the homophobic prayer after the supreme court ruled that an LGBTQ rights group being banned from officially registering themselves was wrong.

The National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission sought to be recognized in 2013, but the move was blocked the country’s NGO board. The newest ruling by Kenya’s highest court means the decision cannot be overturned.

In the ruling the judge said,”it would be unconstitutional to limit the rights to associate, through denial of registration of an association, purely on the basis of the sexual orientation of the applicants ” adding they believe gay sex should be illegal.


Ms Ruto led prayers in east Africa after the seminal ruling for the country during a Sunday church service.
