Obama anti gay protest halted over security concerns in Mombasa

23 July 2015, 17:00 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Security agents In Mombasa have halted an anti gay rights peace walk in Mombasa over security concerns. The walk was planned to take place from Makadara ground to Mama Ngina grounds.

Save Humanity's Face initiative director Amani Chifwete said they had received a letter from the Mombasa OCPD Geoffrey Mayek which had directed them to cancel the walk over security concerns in Mombasa County.

“We have heard that President Barrack Obama will be addressing the issues of same sex marriages in Kenya during his visit, which we strongly condemn and will not allow ” said Chifwete

He said that they are aware that Obama had pushed for same sex marriage during his visit in Ghana and they were keen to pass the message to him not push same sex marriage in Kenya.

Chifwete said they had organized a peaceful demonstration in which they had planned to conduct 23 weddings in a move towards ensuring that Kenya denounces same sex marriages.

“ We were to conduct 12 Muslims marriages, 1 Christian and 10 traditional Mijikenda marriages at Mama Ngina drive” he said

" We are surprised our protest were cancelled at the last minute," added Felly Katana. She said that the Kenyan community will not support gay-ism in Kenya.

In a letter seen by News24 written to the American president through the America Embassy in Kenya, one of the activists by the name of Kahindi had requested President Obama to marry him in the letter.

In the letter dated July 20 2015, Kahindi indicated that he was a Kenyan aged 35 years and of sound mind and character.

Kahidni further indicated that to lead by example and show the world that he will spearhead the fight for human rights, he was had offered his marriage proposal to President Obama.

The protesters however said that the planned wedding of the 23 couples will go on as planned on a later date despite the canceled protests.
