Kenyans react to historic ruling on legalization of gayism in Kenya

Today, the High Court of Kenya is expected to pass a landmark ruling on whether to uphold or strike out the law banning homo sexuality.

The ruling by a three-judge bench comes after it had been postponed in February and follows a petition filed by gay activists in 2016.

According to the activists, the law violates Kenya’s progressive 2010 constitution, which guarantees equality, dignity and privacy for all citizens.

In Kenya, same-sex relationships can lead to a 14-year jail sentence.

It is expected that the ruling will be a defining moment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) equality in the country.

In moments leading up to the landmark ruling, Kenyans on Twitter have created a #Repeal162 hashtag to express their opinions in matters regarding same sex marriage in Kenya.

Here are some of the tweets:
