Kwale Governor Fatuma Achani has launched offensive campaign against homosexualism in the county.
Speaking during the marking of the International Women’s Day in Matuga, Achani said her administration is against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer persons(LGBTQ) narrative.
“We as Kwale people don’t support the marriage of the same gender,” she said.
Achani strongly condemned the vice adding that it is uncouth behavior.
She said LGBTQ is against the rule of law, teachings of religious books, culture and traditions of the African people.
Achani said satanic practices should not be allowed to prosper but completely uprooted in society.
The governor said that marriage of the same sex is a huge sin and cancer to the future generation.
Recently, Achani’s critics alleged that homosexuality has spread at the county headquarters.
But the county strongly denied the allegations and termed them as mere political propaganda spread to taint Achani’s leadership.
The governor said her administration doesn’t and will not promote barbaric acts that have no meaning to the Kwale people.
She urged parents to monitor their children behavior and ensure they are raised well and have high moral values.
Achani also advised parents not to drop their guard against teen pregnancies, early marriages and female genital mutilation.
She said the county will provide the necessary support to protect women, girls and boy child from any form of sexual exploitation.
Achani said parents should strive to educate their children become responsible people to be able to fight poverty and inequality.
She said success has no shortcur but to work hard through education.
The governor said her administration is determined to increase county literacy level by giving bursaries to Kwale children to further their studies.
Achani said she aims at producing a productive society that is well educated, empowered and have equal opportunities.
Last week, a section of Kwale religious leaders protested against the LGBTQ.
They faulted the Supreme Court verdict that nodded the registration of LGBTQ groups.
President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua have also moved to criticize the ruling.
They said LGBTQ will have no place under their leadership.
