Same-sex relationships are not permitted in more than 70 countries, almost half of them in Africa, where homosexuality is broadly taboo and persecution is rife.

Indeed, Kenya has arrested over 534 people involved in same-sex relationships between 2013 and 2017.

Nevertheless, the High Court had began hearings regarding the law from last year.

However, thousands of gay Kenyans are aware that Decriminalisation won’t stop prejudice, but it should end arrests and blackmail, and help rein in assaults and rapes if gay Kenyans no longer fear police, said the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, one of the petitioners against the law.

In fact, the commission has recorded over 1500 attacks agaisnt gay, lesbian, and LGBT Kenyans since 2014.
