Horrifying New Bill in Kenya Seeks to Publicly Stone Foreign Gays
A new bill that is being drafted in Kenya seeks to criminalize nationals found guilty of sodomy with life in prison and punish foreigners, who are found guilty of sodomy, by publicly stoning them to death.”There is need to protect children and youth who are vulnerable to sexual abuse and deviation as a result of cultural changes, uncensored information technology, parentless-child developmental settings and increasing attempts by homosexuals to raise children in homosexual relationships through adoption, foster care or otherwise,” the party who is drafting the bill’s legal secretary, Edward Onwong’a Nyakeriga, said.
The bill, which is being called the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, also seeks to classify HIV positive persons engaging in homosexuality and persons who engage in homosexual activity with a minor into one category called “aggravated homosexuality.” Those under this category will also be stoned to death.
Justice and Legal Affairs committee will consider the bill and report back to the House. [AllAfrica]
