Raila Odinga Criticizes Supreme Court’s LGBTQ Ruling


Raila Odinga, the Azimio leader, criticized the Supreme Court on March 2 for ruling on the registration of LGBTQ groups.

Odinga, while speaking with the council of Imams and preachers, referred to Article 45 of the Constitution which states that every Kenyan has the right to marry someone of the opposite gender with their consent.

He accused the Supreme Court of violating the law by making a law which is the responsibility of Parliament.

Odinga emphasized that the matter should have been directed to Parliament which is mandated to enact or amend laws.

He also stated that the Judiciary is not responsible for creating laws but can recommend changes to Parliament if they see a loophole.
