A section of Members of Parliament (MPs) has lauded three East African country’s presidents over their firm stand against LGTBQ.
During the debate over the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding registering LGBTQ associations, the lawmakers said there was a need to stand firm against Western culture.
National Assembly Majority Kimani Ichung’wah praised Uganda President Yoweri Museveni for his stand against LGBTQ practices in the neighbouring country.
“If there is anything I support President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on, it is the issue of LGBTQ. We must be forthright as a nation to protect our own culture, our religion and our beliefs. We must not allow those countries from the West who believe in those things to let them believe in whatever they want to believe in, but they must not force us to believe in the things they believe in. They must also respect our culture, our beliefs and what we believe,” said Ichung’wah on Wednesday, March 1.
Tharaka MP George Murugara, while condemning the judgement, claimed former Uganda president Adi Amin might have been killed because of his firm stand against LGBTQ.
“Thats why we today we celebrate President Yoweri Museveni, and late Mugabe and sometimes it appears Adi Amin was a saint because this are the things he condemned those days. So therefore, we as Africans must stand up, we must stand to be counted,” Murugara said.
On his part, Mwingi North lawmaker Paul Nzengu challenged President William Ruto to borrow a leaf from the Ugandan president and publicly condemn the LGTBQ practices.
“If Museveni, who does not so open about his Christianity, refused to bow to the pressure of sanctions, then let Kenya not accept any money, or donations that are tied to the legalising of homosexuality,” Nzengu stated.
