A section of religious leaders in Uasin Gishu County has vowed to hold demonstrations if the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) which is being held in Nairobi will set out an agenda that goes against Kenya's culture and religious heritage.
Uasin Gishu Muslim Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya (CIPK) chair Sheikh Abubakar Bini claimed that the conference has a hidden agenda.
“As religious leaders in Uasin Gishu, we will not allow the conference to advocate for voluntary abortion, same-sex marriages, early involvement in sex, and homosexuality. If they are passed we will hold the mother of all demonstrations,” said Bini.
Bini who spoke to journalists in Eldoret Town on Tuesday claimed that the conference is out to advocate for same-sex marriages which is against the cultural values of Kenyans.
“If that is their agenda we won't allow it whatsoever since it's against our tradition and religious belief,” added Bini.
Bini called on President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto not to allow such agendas to be passed in the country.
The International Conference on Population and Development commenced on November 12 and is expected to end on November 14.
