Obama And Kenyatta Differ Sharply On Gay Rights

The US and Kenyan presidents have differed sharply in their positions on gay rights at a news conference on the first full day of Barack Obama’s visit to Africa, according to a BBC report.

While Mr Obama spoke strongly against discrimination, Uhuru Kenyatta said Kenya did not share the same values.

Mr Kenyatta described the question of gay rights as “really a non-issue” in Kenya, saying that the country needed to concentrate on other areas “that are day-to-day living for our people”.
