MP lambastes media for supporting homosexuality

03 June 2015, 09:36 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - A member of parliament has called on the Kenyan media to stop supporting homosexuality and instead preach against it.

Nakuru women representative, Mary Mbugua said that majority of Kenyan media houses have in the recent past appeared to support homosexuality, something she said is against the Kenyan and African culture.

Speaking Tuesday in Molo town, Mbugua said the media has a lot of influence on the lives of Kenyans and they should use the influence to speak against the vice instead of appearing to support it.

“I want to tell the Kenyan media that they should stop supporting homosexuality and instead use the influence they have to preach against the vice. It is sad to see young people in the media industry using social media platforms and even radio programmes to register their support for this ungodly act,” said Mbugua.

The Mp wondered how good morals will be cultivated in the society if the media continues to lobby for what she termed as rotten morals.

“If the media cannot be a useful tool to shape the society, then the government must act hard on such media houses that only engage in filling our children with misleading advice,” she said.

“In the past, the media used to be a tool that spoke against evils in the society but today’s media is at the forefront in supporting and propagating evil,” she lamented.
