Clerics want anti-homosexuality laws passed

14 March 2014, 11:53 Rodgers Buluma

Mombasa - Religious leaders in the Coastal region have asked County assemblies to pass laws against homosexuality in the region to save the young generation.

Speaking to the media in Likoni, Mombasa Sheikh Ali Yardhawi Maasud said that the young generation in the region is being lured into actions that are completely contrary to the teachings of any God-fearing religion in the world.

The Islam cleric said that the rate at which youths in the region are turning to behaviours befit for animals is alarming and only the county parliaments are able to save the situation.

“The national parliament will not possibly be able to pass the laws because they have a resisting force from other parts of the world and who don’t experience the problem. It's here in the coast that the pain is most felt,” said Sheikh Yardhawi.

The concerns by religious leaders were raised way back before Uganda even passed the anti-homosexuality Bill, but no action has been taken to fight the growing habit in the region yet.

Mombasa has the largest number of free homosexual couples in the country.

Recently, unknown people were secretly attacking those believed to belong to the homosexual community in the region.
