Kenya: Homosexuality is UnAfrican

Gukira writes a brilliant short piece entitled “Homosexuality is Un-African”………”Homosexuality, it is claimed, was introduced to Africa by the West. Others argue that homophobia, not homosexuality, was introduced to Africa. This dog-chase-tail debate privileges cultural origin as the primary source of legal authority: “as it was so it should be.” Myths make for great stories but terrible legislation.”
