Nairobi - Various lobby groups against homosexuality have teamed up condemning Western governments for propagating gay practice in Africa which they vowed to fight it by all ways to save the African boy-child.
The group's anti-homosexuality camapign dubbed; Zui Sodom Kabisa; "Save the family, save the youth, save the men, save Kenya", said it intends to collect one million signatures to petition the Parliament and the Judiciary to protect the Constitution from being subjected to liberal interpretation in favor if homosexuals.
The lobby comprising of Save Our Men Initiative (SOMI), Maendeleo ya Wanaume, Religious groups, Council of Elders and Legal professionals noted that Western countries' support to homosexuality community has given gays boldness to go against the continent's culture and religious mannerisms.
SOMI Chairman, Peter Munga said that there is need to strengthen the nation's laws and outlaw homosexual propaganda that targets to recruit youths, especially bright ones, into the controversial lifestyle.
"Homosexuality in Kenya is a serious threat to life, community, and our youths in high school, their recruitment is hotbed. It must be stopped. As Save Our Men Initiative, and our partnering organizations, we want to raise a voice of reason against this morally decadent community and their foreign and local facilitators," said Munga.
He warned against giving gays the "space to tell their stories" that is a dangerous seduction against family values.
"This blanket gay propaganda shows clearly that they do not intend to carry out their behaviors in private but to work to change our public environment, our families, our schools, our society, to sanctify their deviant acts," stated Munga.
"Our culture and conscience is not for sale for economic gain from the West. We strongly believe in the family and who we are as Kenyan people. Join us as we save the family, save the youth, save the men, save Kenya," he added.
The Maendeleo ya Wanaume Chairman, Peter Njoka warned that homosexuality should not be allowed in the country at all since it threatens humanity life.
"The Bible states clearly that anyone caught in homosexuality should be killed thus we call upon the government to legislate punitive laws for homosexuals even if it is life imprisonment," said Njoka.
He urged men not to be easily swayed by immoral Western cultures accompanied by consequential financial benefits to defy their moral African culture.
The Muslim priest, Sheikh Abdallah Kheir also condemned the Western governments for threatening to cut their financial aid to African countries that oppose homosexuality.
"I want to tell Western nations that we cannot relent the fight against immoral homosexuality in the nation because of your aids. Our African culture is founded on moral God's commandments specially one prohibiting homosexuality," said Kheir.
He cited that the Muslim community values the family and that they will not allow homosexuality to take over their exemplary religious practices and believes.
The Redeemed Gospel Archbishop, Arthur Kitonga challenged Western countries to help the continent in enhancing economic growth other than supporting immoral cultures among youths.
Kitonga added that the West should spend their resources in stemming the Syria crisis and elsewhere other than wasting it on eroding the African culture.
"Homosexuality being propagated by Western governments in Africa is the most deadly weapon to finish the continent, which we cannot allow at all for the benefit of our today and future generations," he said.
The National Women Chair-lady, Mary Kirika noted that the boy-child has to be protected from adopting immoral Western cultures.
The lobby lauded the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni for taking a bold step of signing the anti-homosexuality bill into law by disregarding the Western influence to put their interests first.
The group assured that the completion of collecting one million signatures will be culminated with a consensus demonstration on Saturday April 5, 2014 upon submitting them to Parliament.
