Members of the Mombasa, Kenya community tipped off police about an LGBT organization supposedly “recruiting youth in the area to join the gay community.”
Police were able to arrest two members of the organization’s staff and interrogate them because homosexuality is illegal in Kenya, according to Nairobi News. Men convicted of having gay sex could be sentenced to up to 14 years in prison.
“We received complaints from members of the public about the activities of the organization,” Makupa Police Station told Nairobi News. “We raided and nabbed some of it’s staff for questioning.”
They were let go after four hours.
Meanwhile, in Bristol, gay rugby player Kenneth Macharia is facing deportation back to Kenya.
If he’s deported, Macharia would have to conceal his sexual identity, he said.
