Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has claimed that his Facebook page has been suspended.

This comes amid heated debate in the country, where leaders continue expressing their opinions regarding the recent Supreme Court ruling. The majority decision gave the green light to the registration of LGBTQ associations.

President William Ruto said that the vice of same-sex marriage would not happen in the country, calling upon Kenyans to observe the African traditions and culture regarding marriage.

Several church and Muslim leaders have also criticized the ruling.

Recently, Home Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma addressed the Speaker of the National Assembly, informing him about a motion that he was to table.

The motion seeks to punish Kenyans involved in LGBTQ, including being hung to death.
