Kenya’s High Court Rules Against Decriminalising Homosexuality


Kenya’s High Court has upheld the law which makes same-sex relations illegal in the country in a ruling on Friday afternoon.

Kenya’s penal code criminalises “carnal knowledge against the order of nature.” According to the country’s laws, anyone found engaging in same-sex relationships could face up to 14 years in prison.

The court said there was not enough evidence that the law, which has been in place since the British colonized Kenya in the late 19th century, discriminated against LGBTQI persons.
