Forget Gay Rights talk during Obama visit, Uhuru says
21 July 2015, 13:37
Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that there will be no gay rights talk during the visit to the country of US President Barrack Obama.
Uhuru said Tuesday during a state of the nation address that there would be frankly no time to speak on such matters considering that there are far more pressing matters to deal with.
" There are many more important things to speak on ahead of such issues which are of no credence to the country and African people," he said.
" We would rather touch on issues of insecurity, development and such matters instead of such issues. They are not important to Kenyans,"he added.
There has recently been talk that Obama will raise the issue during his visit to the country following his support of the newly enacted gay marriages law in the US, but it has been dismissed by many who have warned the President not to.
Obama will be in Kenya to open the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit which takes place on the weekend of 25-26 July.
