Monday, April 15, 2019- Residents of Juja town in Kiambu County have raised an alarm over increased cases of homosexuality in the area.
The residents are also angered by the brazen way in which these men are engaging in public display of affection (PDA)
Speaking during a security meeting, residents said they were scared that if the practice is not stopped, young boys would be lured into it.
The matter has caught the attention of the Deputy County Commissioner Charles Mureithi who has put on notice those practicing homosexuality in the area.
“We are investigating claims of increase in homosexuals. We will not allow a few people to paint this area in bad light,” said Mureithi.
Mr. Mureithi stated that the country does not recognise gays, warning that anyone found will be arrested and dealt with according to the law.
Meanwhile, Pastor Jackson Njoroge of the Empowering People Gods Ministry says the behavior is still common despite holding meetings with youth in the area.
“The practice is gaining prominence as more and more men are being lured into the act. We fear that we might lose an entire generation because who shall marry our young girls when our men concentrate on marrying each other. The government and the church should intervene,” he said.
