The LGBT community today took to the streets of Nairobi to demonstrate against a directive by Education CS George Magoha to have gay students out of boarding schools.

Makena Njeri, accompanied by members of the community, led the peaceful demos with a mission to petition the directive.

Other LGBTQ members took to their social media to comment about the directive is Sauti Sol’s member Chimano supported the protests, saying the community’s rights should be respected.

@Iamchimano Our rights are human rights. #queerrightsarehumanrights. We’re here, always been here, we’ll stay being here!

Makena said they has a peaceful and successful march and they managed to give out their petition. Posting on her socials she said,

@Makenanjeri Today we had one mission. To March in the streets to the ministry of education to hand over our petition to the CS. This came after discriminatory statements were made by the CS earlier this month citing that Gay children should not be allowed in boarding schools how absurd.

Our march today was to remind the leaders that they should be protecting all children who have a right to education anywhere they want regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Children of the Republic of Kenya have a right and they shall not be discriminated by the same government that should be protecting them. Thank you @marylize_biubwa for organizing this! We are Bold.

We had a peaceful, frustrating but successful march and we managed to give out our petition. We await a response from the office.
