Kenya: Gay rights will destroy family values, Supreme Court told


The Supreme Court on Tuesday was asked to reject registration of an organisation for gay rights on grounds it would erode family values and harm society. The Non-Governmental Organisations Coordination Board told the Supreme Court that organisations can be registered to protect the rights of persons but not to promote activities that violate any laws or policies. The board was represented by lawyer Charles Kanjama. “Its registration will harm family values and these values are protected in the Constitution. Approaches by western countries seeking to impose their own values on us will not be accepted but resisted by African countries,” Kanjama said.
