MP Mohammed Ali quotes Quran and Bible as he condemns LGBTQ campaign

Nyali MP Mohammed Ali popularly known as Jicho Pevu has countered the LGBTQ campaign in the country with the scriptures. Ali, who quoted both the Bible and the Quran, said it is important for the country to follow what the scriptures say.

Trashing the push from the US government, the journalist-turned-politician said there is no democracy and human rights in LGBTQ, calling it satanism.

“If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads,” he said quoting Leviticus 20:13.

The MP further said he is unmoved by the risks of having his visa to the US is revoked for his anti-gay stance.

“I have even told them if they will revoke my visa, so be it. The visa we are looking for should be to get to heaven,” he said.

The MP further challenged the US to take all LGBTQ members and fight for their human rights and democracy while they live in their country and not in Kenya.

Early this month, President William Ruto said Kenya has values that need to be respected.

“We respect the courts but I will not allow it (same sex marriages) in Kenya. We have our culture and traditions, we respect our constitution and all our religions,” President Ruto said.

This was after the Supreme Court of Kenya ruled that the LGBTQ community had the right to association.

“It would be unconstitutional to limit the right to associate through denial of registration of an association purely based on the sexual orientation of the applicants,” three apex court judges said in their ruling.
