Homa Bay Town Constituency Member of Parliament Peter Kaluma has asked the national assembly speaker to provide him with resources for drafting an anti-homosexuality bill.
“I intend to bring legislation to criminalize and punish homosexuality and other unnatural sexual acts and further to criminalize the promotion of such acts in Kenya,” the Mp has said in a letter sent to Speaker Moses Wetangula.
The legislator intends to amend provisions of article 45(2) of the Constitution which speaks on the family.
“(1) The family is the natural and fundamental unit of society and the necessary basis of social order, and shall enjoy the recognition and protection of the State.
MP Kaluma proposed heavy punishment on the LGBTQ community, which is becoming widespread in the country.
“…to protect the family will not only consolidate all existing laws relating to unnatural sex acts but also increase the penalty for those convicted of engaging or promoting the acts to imprisonment for life or commensurate sentence.”
He has been vocal on the issue, reiterating that “This LGBTQ Nonsense must be punished and completely eradicated!”
