Oscar Sudi hits out at religious leaders over LGBTQ

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has accused some religious leaders of hypocrisy in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) debate.

The outspoken MP explained that some religious leaders who are supposed to be role models are practicing a lifestyle that goes against the holy scriptures and African customs and culture.

“It is very sad that some pastors and bishops are also gays and are silent on this issue. I want to challenge those pastors to shun such a lifestyle and preach to members of society to shun it,

“We will not hesitate to condemn them. It is unacceptable. A man and woman should marry and have children. We will not accept this lifestyle, I want to advise our young people to shun such a lifestyle,” said the United Democratic Alliance (UDA)-allied legislator.

He challenged the clergy to take the lead and preach against LGBTQ issues in our country.

Mr Sudi also criticized those championing the lifestyle, saying that it is an abomination act in society.

“Don’t accept to misled by those who are promoting satanic agenda because it is an abomination thing that a man and man or woman and a woman are involved in sexual relations. Before anyone thinks about it because this is satanic,” said the lawmaker.

President William Ruto recently said his administration will seek a review of the Supreme Court ruling that allowed the registration of LGBTQ lobby groups in the country.

The MP was speaking on Friday when he presided over the disbursement of CDF funds to various schools in his constituency.

The lawmaker also advised parents to counsel their children to shun romantic relations and other social vices.

He said that it was regrettable that there are increased cases of teen pregnancies across the country.

“I advise our children to put their education first. Get a University degree, jobs and settle and not accept to be misled to engage in romantic relationships,” said MP.

The lawmaker also put on notice those selling drugs and alcohol to students, saying that the move was wrong as it was destroying the future generation.

“I want to tell those who are selling drugs to our children to stop such business. It is better to engage in other ventures like dairy farming than destroying our children’s future,” added Mr Sudi.

He added: “I want to tell those students not to be misled, drugs are bad. Don’t be fooled that it can help in your studies. Instead these drugs will turn your life upside down.”

At the same time, Mr Sudi who was accompanied by nominated MP Joseph Wainaina condemned the ongoing protests in the country.
