KENYA – GAY DEATH PENALTY REJECTED


The Kenyan Parliament has thankfully rejected a controversial bill which, had it been successful, would have seen people convicted of homosexuality stoned to death.

The news isn’t all good though as the reason the law was rejected was because it was felt that the current punishment of up to 14 years in jail was still appropriate.

Kenyan LGBTI rights activist Denis Nzioka told Gay Star News that while this is a ‘very good step’ for Kenya, it really highlight just how quickly anti-gay sentiment had grown in the African nation.
