The Kalenjin Myoot Council of elders has warned the youth engaging in unnatural carnal relationships saying they risk attracting a curse upon their lives.

Led by their chairman Alex Mursi the elders warned  against increased cases of men having sexual affairs  with fellow men as well as women having sexual intercourse with other women especially in learning Institutions.

“This has never happened in our time, as Kalenjin elders  the issue of  LGBTQ  can and will never be condoned, we warn our children against such  acts  as they will invoke a  curse upon themselves,”Said Mursi while speaking to the press.

“Those who are thinking of joining this group I strongly advise them against such a move, it is against our traditions and even our religious beliefs and we will not allow our children to practice this foreign culture,”added John Seii another Elder.

The Myoot elders have welcomed  the recent  remarks  by the President ,Dr William Ruto  and his  deputy Rigathi Gachagua who  emphasized that Kenya was a God  fearing  Nation  with strong Cultural values and  would not allow  Same Sex marriages,

“We support president Ruto who in no uncertain terms made it clear that this Country will not welcome the issue of  LGBTQ as recently witnessed in some of our  courts”, They said.

The Myoot has  urged  religious  leaders to  continue preaching strongly against same sex  marriages in the country.

Kenya’s Supreme court  allowed for the  registration of  the  LGBTQ organizations, a  controversial judgement that has  been slammed by a section of  members of  parliament.
