Who are Kenya’s real homosexuals? That is the question that one man wants to Kenyans to think about as we wait for the arrival of the President of the United States (POTUS) Barrack Obama.

In a video that is doing rounds on Whatsup, the man, argues that “homosexuals” are all the people who are destroying the country through unorthodox ways such as corruption.

Top on the list of the man who looks young, that is in the video, are politicians. According to him,

“Members of Parliament, Members of County Assemblies, Senators, and Governors, are the real homosexuals.”

“When they raise their salaries so high, in a poor country….what is wrong with Kenya?” he asks.

In the video the man who looks taken by the message he is passing across also wonders why MCA’s earn close to half a million when they don’t “even have a degree.”

“The real homosexuals are the people who are destroying our country, corrupt people,”

he laments while also putting the blame to ordinary Kenyans.

Apparently, the man gives the message in response to the debate from a section of politicians who have been ‘lecturing’ Obama on what to say when he comes to the country.

Led by Deputy President William Ruto, the politicians have been saying that Obama should steer away from talk on homosexuality. As a caution against defamation on a single person, he makes it clear that he is giving the message “in my opinion” and does not refer to any specific person as a homosexual.

This is not the first time that Kenyans have been angered by the actions of politicians, especially by the speed in which they pass motions dealing on their welfare like those on raising their salaries and allowances.

Diaper 1

In the past activists have staged demonstrations and passed messages on social media calling politicians “MPigs” in reference to their uncouth conduct. Boniface Mwangi, a photo journalist and activist who has led such demonstrations is also famous for the coining of the phrase “Diaper Mentality” a campaign on good governance and general ethics in the country.

In addition, there has also been the “Ushenzi Uungwana” campaign by one Ken Njiru which also advocates on good morals among Kenyans.

Barrack Obama is expected in Kenya over the weekend for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES). Although his itinerary and the message he will deliver is not very clear, it is speculated that good governance and corruption will be among the agenda that will top his list.

One can however hope that the message that the man is passing across in the video will get to the real and intended people so that they can stop the destruction of the country.
