The ‘Quest Means Business’ host has been a vocal supporter of gay rights and visited Kenya last year where he reaffirmed his beliefs in October last year while on work-related engagements.
He spoke in a local radio station, while here and said that he was unapologetic for advocating for the decriminalization of same-s3x marriages, saying,
I am obviously going to be advancing an agenda that says there should be at least the decriminalization of same s3xual activity. It is straight forward, I am not gonna mess around with that one. That is obviously my belief.
Just last week, the High Court upheld a law banning LGBTI, keeping same-s3x relations punishable by 14 years in jail. The ruling has drawn strong criticism from the United Nations and rights activists.
