Ahmednasir Abdullahi calls out President William Ruto for over lack of LGBTQ representation in his government.
On Friday, lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi criticized President William Ruto on Twitter over the absence of Lgbt individuals from his cabinet.
Abdullahi contrasted Ruto’s cabinet alleging that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cabinet had 5 LGBTQ members and over 12 senior staff in the State House and Office of the President.
“H.E William Ruto must be called out for excluding members of the LBGTQ from his govt. Contrast this with Uhuru’s commendable policy. Uhuru’s cabinet had 5 LBGTQ members & over 12 senior staff in State House/Office of the President. President Ruto has ZER0…YES ZERO!,” Ahmednasir tweeted.
In a previous CNN interview, Ruto stated that he respects everyone and their beliefs, adding that the same should be said for those who hold opposing beliefs.
“We have Kenyan law, we have Kenyan constitution, we have our tradition, customs; we will continue to respect other people’s customs as they respect our customs and traditions,” he said.
“We also have what we believe in and we expect to be respected for that too,” he added
