Gay students arrested at a Nakuru bar

16 February 2015, 21:00 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Tens of young men suspected to be homosexuals were arrested on Sunday night at a popular Nakuru bar known to be gay friendly.

The young men, mostly university and college students, were arrested by police in the wee hours of the morning as they partied.

According to police reports, officers carried out the raid at the popular bar after residents complained about the students' indecent gay acts.

Confirming the incident Monday morning, Nakuru police boss Bernard Kioko said that those arrested were openly engaging in indecent sexual acts in the bar.

“We have been hearing of these things (homosexuality) happening at this place and people have been complaining about how increasingly young men in Nakuru town are turning towards that line and that is why we decided to ambush them today and what we saw there was despicable and if that is the route our young men are following then in the next few years there will be no society,” said Kioko.

Kioko added that the Kenyan constitution outlaws homosexuality and sexual indecency in public saying that those arrested will be arraigned in court on Tuesday.

Kioko cautioned bar owners against allowing outlawed acts to be practiced within their premises and warned that such bars will be closed down.
