Kenyan launches LGBTQ crackdown in schools

03/10/2023 | Africa News

The Ministry of Education in Kenya has initiated a campaign to address the perceived infiltration of LGBTQ advocacy in schools. The new strategy will see the government establish chaplaincies in schools, minister Ezekiel Machogu told senators on Thursday. There are fears the programme could see misinformation about LGBTQ people and same-sex relationships taught in schools. Gay sex remains illegal but anti-gay attitudes have been hardening after last month’s ruling by the Supreme Court upholding the gay community’s right to register an association. A committee has already been formed to deal with LGBTQ issues in schools, the minister said and suggested its role could include reviewing school literature.
