Deputy President William Ruto has aired his sentiments on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) rights in Kenya.
“My position as a Christian is that Bible teaches us against homosexuality and related matters, that is me as William Ruto,” Ruto said.
He stated that as a public servant, he respects the constitution.
“Whatever is within the Constitution, and the law, I’ll respect. So long as everybody is operating within the law, and within what is permissible within the Constitution, they have nothing to fear because we are a nation governed by the rule of law,” he said.
Ruto is currently in America and in one of his meetings, he said that no Kenyan should be discriminated irrespective of principals and beliefs.
“Every Kenyan must be subjected to the rule of law…no Kenyan should be subjected to any harassment or any form of harm,” Ruto told Mvemba Phezo Dizolele, Director and Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic International Studies.
