Gays and Lesbians are hoping that the High Court will tomorrow rule in their favour by declaring the laws criminalizing gayism as unconstitutional.

In an interview with Ghetto Radio, apostle Nicholus Musembi says it is high time that the Kenyan Courts gave the group an opportunity to live their own lives.

Musembi says that the move to criminalise their acts was against their fundamental freedom.

He argues that as a society, everybody should be respected and that the government has no option but legalise LGBT group.

‘‘We expect that  the high court will see sense and grant this special group its rights,why should we continue condemning them and they exist?.. they are there in our society and  some are our brothers and sisters.’’ Musembi stated.

The high court of Kenya  will tomorrow in the morning give a ruling  on whether to strike out or uphold  law banning gay lesbian  sex LGT in Kenya  following a petition challenging the law.

The LGBT debate has received mixed reaction with almost 80% of Kenyans condemning  them.

According to Lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui  Gay sex acts goes against  constitution and allowing  it will throw the the country  into a legal mess.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Kenya and punishable by up to 14 years in prison.

This comes a day after the death of LGBT activist  Binyavanga Wainaina who shocked the world by by publicly announcing his sexuality immediately  sparking international debate.
