Sonko on the spot for saying gays should be burnt

25 February 2016, 18:41 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko says he will not retract his statement which purported that gay people should be killed.

Sonko stated earlier this week that gays in Mombasa should be abhored and cleared from the face of the earth, a statement that did not go down well with some members of civil society.

The Governor was quoted as saying that " This is a homosexual who says his name is Amina. I rebuke you Amina, you should be burnt."

He added " The Bible condemns homosexuality. So does the Quran. You evil spirits, be gone."

The Governor, after being condemned by Civil Society members said he did not care much about what they said and that he felt his conscience was right.

" I will not say something that I do not agree with. My conscience says that homosexuality is wrong and it is illegal in Kenya too, so that is not a topic of discussion," he added.

" My religious beliefs do not make any case for them and I will not," he added.

The remarks came in the wake of the Kenya Film Classification Board banning a song that was considered to be too abrasive for local audiences.

The song by Art Attack called Same love was banned by the KFCB this week over its gay utterances.
