The Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula has faulted the Supreme Court of Kenya for its recent controversial ruling on the freedom of association for the LGBTQ.

According to Wetangula, the ruling open ground for various consequences that may destroy the cultural fabric of the Kenyan nation.

He took to his social media accounts to express his dissatisfaction with the Supreme Court ruling.

“Kenya is deeply religious. Each Individual and/or Public institution, including the judiciary, has a duty to uphold, defend and protect public morals!!” Wetangula wrote.

“The SC pronouncement may lead to unintended and unhelpful consequences.”

Wetangula echoes the voice of clerics in the country who also criticized the ruling saying such groups should not be allowed in the country while they questioned whether other illegal groups should be allowed to associate freely.

On Friday, the Supreme Court ruled that denying the LGBTQ members the right to register as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) was discriminatory despite homosexuality being illegal in the country.

In 2013, a lower court barred the LGBTQ members from registering as an NGO to advance their rights.
