In an interview with Christiane Amanpour of CNN, President Kenyatta reiterated the country’s stance on homosexuality saying that it goes against cultural beliefs of majority of Kenyans. The President said same-sex relations is not an issue of human rights, but rather of "our own base as a culture”. "I won't engage in a subject that is of no importance to the people of Kenya. This is not an issue of human rights, this is an issue of our own base as a culture, as a people regardless of which community you come from," President Kenyatta said.
