President Uhuru Kenyatta shied away from talking about homosexuality (gayism/ lesbianism) today at State House and what he will discuss with US President, Barrack Obama, about the subject which has drawn mixed reactions from across the country ahead of the latter’s visit.
Addressing journalists at State House, Uhuru told a UK journalist off politely and avoided his question on gayism.
The journalist, who works for a UK-based newspaper, The Guardian, had asked the President about his feeling on the issue of homosexuality and what he will tell Obama if he advocates for same s*x marriages during his trip to Kenya, only for Uhuru to dismiss him and veer off the topic completely.
Uhuru said gayism is a non-issue to him as far as Obama’s visit is concerned and that he will not waste time discussing it.
Instead, Uhuru focused on the main agenda of the visit saying he will engage Obama on serious things that affect Kenya.
This comes even as the President, through his Spokesman, Manoah Esipisu, said that he will not stop Barrack Obama from speaking about gays and lesbians while in Kenya.
