Barely a few days after the controversial Supreme Court’s ruling allowing members of the LGBTQ community the power to seek formal recognition by the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Board, several voices have been raised against the decision recognizing the group members.

Among them are the clergy from Bethel Gospel Ministers from Uasin Gishu County who condemned this vice and thanked President William Ruto for  declaring  a  firm stand against LGBTQ.

“We condemn with the strongest words possible the decision made by the Supreme Court  contrary to the constitution and the word of  God and we  thank our president for  coming out  clear over  the  issue as have  done  his predecessors.” Said Dr. Eliud Karanja Wanyoike.

“Secondly we’ve never seen a man to man union ending with a child being born, nor have we seen a woman to woman union leading to child birth,Even those who are in support of  this vice were born out  of  a man and woman .” Noted Njenga.

Criticizing the judges for making the ruling that calls for the recognition of these groups, the clergy wondered how the judges who come up from straight families would deliver such a ruling bent to mess up the country’s reputation and its future

Calling for future scrutiny of our leadership before them occupying public offices and leadership positions in the country, the clergy called for a serious National discourse over the Gay and lesbian behaviors being mooted by powerful nations.

“When vetting is being done to look for judges fit for our courts, this should be one of the things to look out for their beliefs and stand towards the same sex marriage. It is something that from now onward needs to be looked into.

Those end up in our public offices, leadership positions so that we.” Concluded John Njenga Kanja

Thursday President Dr. William Ruto while launching the second phase of  the Hustler Fund at KICC Nairobi, affirmed that while respecting the decision of the Supreme court ,Kenya will continue to observe and respect its  Traditions  and Religious values  and beliefs that do no support same sex marriages.
