Kenyan Prime Minister Denies Calling for Arrest of Homosexuals

Dec. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga said a report that he had called for homosexuals in the East African country to be arrested was incorrect.

The Daily Nation reported on Nov. 29 that Odinga told supporters in his constituency that gay people should be arrested because same-sex relationships are unnatural.

“I did not say anywhere that the police will arrest the gays because I know of gay rights,” Odinga said at a conference today in Nairobi, the capital. “Nothing could be further from truth.”
