Coast MPs say no to LGBTQ


A number of Coast Members of Parliament are saying ‘no’ to LGBTQ.

Through their social media platforms, Nyali Member of Parliament Mohamed Ali and his Likoni counterpart Mishi Mboko said LGBTQ was not allowed.

In his social media post, MP Mohamed Ali went ahead to urge Kenyans not to waste time discussing LGBTQ saying that they should be jailed.

Meanwhile, MP Mishi Mboko said LGBTQ should not be entertained in the country.

Other leaders from other parts of the country including Homa Bay Town Member of Parliament Peter Kaluma and Nairobi Women Representative have expressed their opinions on the matter through their social media platforms.

Their remarks come in the midst of investigations into the murder of LGBTQ rights activist Edwin Chiloba.

The fashion designer and model is said to have been killed by his lover Jacktone Odhiambo and his body stuffed in a metal box.

His body was found in the box dumped by the road at Kipkaren on the outskirts of Eldoret Town, Uasin Gishu County.

Government Pathologist Dr. Johanssen Oduor on Wednesday revealed that Chiloba died of asphyxiation. Three pairs of socks were found stuffed in his mouth.

Odhiambo confessed to murdering Chiloba over cheating allegations.

Four other suspects believed to have helped Odhiambo in moving, loading, and probably dumping the metallic box are also in custody.
