Gaitho got it wrong

In response to today's article in the Daily Nation on gay marriages and the consequent denouncement of the prime ministers move to arrest gays, I beg to disagree with Macharia Gaitho's view on the same. 

 To the argument of Gaitho you are terming the vice imaginary and no one can be liable for any action related or associated to it.Am sure at the time you were writing this article with the expertise and the experience you have in journalism you did not ascertain the fact that the number of gays and lesbians in Kenya is on the rise.Already, for your information a body is in place to fight for the rights of the gays and lesbians living in Kenya dubbed the gay and lesbian coalition of Kenya.

Mr Gaitho you better listen to your conscience and learn to know that gaysm is not an imaginary act and its an of fence to practice it in Kenya.

Mr Odinga could as well have succumbed to pressure from the clergy to stress the fact the new constitution do not  legitimize gaysm and the affiliate practices to speed up the snail -pace constitutional implementation process.

sex against the order of the nature is currently punishable according to the new constitution to a jail term of up to 14 years.

Instead of being the first to denounce the prime minister's  utterances i bet you would have been the first to invent ways of handling the western  vice that is  already marauding the African culture.

Her aunt who lives in Kawangware also convinced her to stay on and secure a job as a house help, for some time before joining secondary school.
Nafula was excited as she hoped she would now be able to help her mother who was ailing back at home by buying her food and medicine. This however, was not to be the case.
Nafula’s aunt handed her over to the prospective employer within the sprawling slums where she worked for only a month before ‘escaping’ never to be seen again.
According to the neighbours, Nafula was often mistreated by her employer.

Unemployment rate in Kenya continues to beckon day by day  and  this has indeed created  instances  that has so far provoked many youth living in  slums as it is popularly known  look for an alternative  quick alternative lest things go out of hand. Many youths have restored to try singing even with croaking voices that no radio station or presenter would opt to hear play not even the listeners, perhaps this could deter listeners of the radios stations switch to another more serious station and never to tune in again . Consequently there is no money to shoot the videos to a formalized production house ending up shooting an unacceptable music video that may be cannot go beyond where it has been shot.
