Nairobi - Two members of parliament have expressed concerns over the legalization of homosexuality in the country, saying that gay marriages were ‘immoral and foreign to African culture.
Kieni MP Kanini Kega said that the parliament will audit the constitution in order to ensure that by 2017 the country has a good constitution that has no controversies.
“We ignored the voice of the church when passing the constitution hence the struggles we are experiencing today,” he further pointed out.

He challenged religious leaders to play their role in shaping the society by overseeing the right teachings as stipulated in holy books.
“Religion and the clergy must stand against this foreign thing and advocate for good ethics in the society,” Mutahi noted.
