US President Barrack Obama has been cautioned by Speaker of the National Assembly in Kenya, Justin Muturi and a clutch of lawmakers against asking Kenya to embrace same-sex marriages when he visits this month.

According to them, gay unions were against the African culture and would not be entertained in Kenya. They also pointed out the Kenyan Penal Code criminalises sodomy and same-sex marriages.

“Liberal thoughts are being entertained in some countries under the guise of human rights. We must be vigilant and guard against it (gay marriages). We must lead an upright society and not allow obnoxious behaviour as we have a responsibility to protect our children,” the speaker said behind the backdrop of the Anglican Church cathedral in Embu County where he hails from.

Mr Muturi stated that he had at one time told off a group of British MPs who wanted to discuss the issue, adding that he would not allow any motion in the National Assembly seeking legislation of gay unions.

He clarified he was expressing his personal views on the topic after the US legalised same-sex marriages; he was not speaking on behalf of the National Assembly.
