AG, DPP to be summoned over non-operational gay laws

19 February 2014, 09:23

Nairobi - A section of legislators allied to Jubilee want Director of Public Prosecution, Keriako Tobiko and Attorney General, Githu Muigai summoned to explain why anti-gay laws are not fully operational in Kenya.

The MPs Irungu Kangata, John Njoroge and Julius Ndegwa said it was shocking to see pro-gay groups holding demonstrations in Nairobi and Mombasa freely as if there are no laws prohibiting homosexual behavior in this country,The Standard reports.

Last week, gays and lesbians in Kenya joined a global effort to protest against an anti-homosexuality bill passed by Uganda's parliament and later signed into law by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni .

They demonstrated in front of Uganda's High Commission in Nairobi wearing rainbow colored wigs and masks.

Eric Gitari, executive director of Kenya's National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, said the Ugandan legislation had major repercussions on human rights conditions across East Africa.

Gitari said that some gays and lesbians in Uganda have fled and are living in a Kenyan refugee camp.
