Nakuru - Njoro Member of Parliament, Joseph Kiuna has vowed to rally support against homosexuality in Kenya.
Kiuna said that homosexuality is against Biblical teaching, and would set a bad example for the young generation if not checked.
“This debate of gayism should not be allowed to take place in our society because it is not Biblical,” he said.
He said the practice should not be entertained, but condemned in the strongest terms possible.
Speaking on Monday in Nakuru town, Kiuna said that protests in support of the practice whether in Kenya or abroad should not be allowed.
The MP also urged religious leaders to participate in national matters to ensure good morals are upheld in the society.
Kiuna noted that there is moral decay in the country and that it was high time men of cloth took their rightful position in the society and led by example.
“The clergy have to ensure that they provide the necessary advice even to government officials so that good morals can be upheld,” the MP said.
Kiuna also called on leaders in Nakuru County to avoid recurrent wrangles saying this would not auger well with the county's development agenda.
He said that the political season was over and that it was time to work for wananchi who elected the leaders.
He said that frequent politicking was not going to spur development in the country.
“Constant politicking will not help our county in any way because we will be dragging behind our county,” He said.
He noted that members of the public expect service from those they elected, which they would use to judge them when they come seeking for re-election in 2017.
Kiuna said local leaders ought to be supportin governor, Kinuthia Mbugua for development to take place in the county.
