The Kenyan High Court Allows The Creation Of A Human Rights Group For LGBT People

The judges of a Kenyan court urged the government to officially register a gay association.

The Non-Governmental Organization Co-ordination Board recently refused the registration of a group wishing to represent Kenyan gay people struggling against violence and against the violation of their human rights by invoking religious and moral reasons.

On September 2013, the director of the group Eric Gitari filed a complaint claiming that his rights had been violated and he was right because that's exactly what the judges concluded.

«In Kenya, the Constitution is supreme,» stated the ruling of Judges Isaac Lenaola, Mumbi Ngugi and George Odunga.

They said that the state «cannot rely on religious texts or its views of what the moral and religious convictions of Kenyans are to justify the limitation of a right.»

In Kenya, homosexual relationships are regarded as a crime. The LGBT community is a victim not only of harassment, but also of violence.
