Muslims in Garissa want US President Barack Obama not to discuss homosexuality during his stay in Kenya.

Led by Chairman of SUPKEM’s Garissa branch Mr. Abdullahi Salat, the leaders who addressed the press in Garissa said that Kenya is a religious nation that was not ready to adopt ‘evil’ practices.

“If Obama wants homosexuality, we are telling him to kindly take it to his country” Salat said adding that if Obama wanted to assist Kenya, he should bring solutions to pertinent issues such as terrorism and corruption.

Similar sentiments were made previously with Majority Leader Aden Duale asking Obama to steer away from the debate when in Kenya.

Local religious leaders across the divide also made similar calls
