Kenya has said that it will not stop US President Barack Obama, from addressing the controversial homosexuality topic when he visits Kenya later this month.
A statement from State House said that Kenya respects freedom of speech as enshrined in the country’s constitution in an apparent response to growing political pressure warning Obama against any talk on homosexuality.
“As Kenyans we believe in Freedom of speech. We cannot tell Obama what he can or cannot say during his visit to Kenya,” Manoah Esipisu, State House spokesman said on Sunday, July 5, 2015.
Aden Duale, majority leader in parliament has also warned Obama of tackling the issue of homosexuality when he visits Kenya on July 26, 2015.
The US president is expected in the country to grace the Global Entrepreneurship Summit as well as hold talks with Uhuru Kenyatta.
