The high court of Kenya is currently dealing with a case regarding the legalization of homosexuality in the country. The case was presented to the high court in 2016 by a group of Kenyan pro-LGBT rights organisations. Kenya is among the 38 African nations that criminalise homosexuality in our continent. East African nations are specifically known for being totally against homosexuality. According to a survey carried by Pew Global Attitudes Project, 97% of Kenyans think that homosexuality should be condemned. The East African country’s penal code punishes consenting homosexual adults to 14 years in prison.
