Christian lobby group seeks participation in gay rights case

30 September 2014, 17:49 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - A Christian lobby group seeking its participation in a gay rights case has been ordered to file its submissions within two weeks.

The Kenya Christian Professional Forum want the court to enjoin them in the matter where Castleman is challenging the constitutionality of the sexual offences Act as relates to gay rights.

However, Castleman’s lawyer Pravin Bowry has objected to the Christian group joining the case noting that they lack the legal standing to do so.

Bowry has noted that the organization has failed to provide any evidence about how the petition filed by his client who has named the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Attorney General as respondents in the suit would affect its membership.

In the suit, Castleman is asking the High Court in Nakuru to find that the sexual offences Act is discriminatory to people disposed to same sex activity and whom he says are a minority group in Kenya.

Castleman was arrested on September 12, 2012 and taken before the Chief Magistrate’s court in Nairobi where he faced two counts of taking advantage of his position of authority to lure two men into sex.

He is accused that on diverse dates between 2008 and 2011 at the Ian Castleman Orphanage in Elburgon area of Nakuru County, he took advantage of his position of authority at theHhome and seduced Dennis Nyandika and Lawrence Nyaega to have sexual relations with him, which did not amount to either rape or defilement.

The missionary worker wants the high court to order that the proceedings against him before the court be permanently stayed.
