Many Kenyans reacted negatively on social media after a church hosted the popular CNN journalist Richard Quest in their service.
Mr Quest is in Kenya on assignment to cover Kenya Airways’ maiden direct flight to the United States. The non-stop journey from JKIA to New York, with 234 passengers on board, will last 13 hours
It was the invitation by Bishop Allan Kiuna to Mr Quest to attend Sunday service at the church that set tongues wagging. The journalist is openly gay.
We welcome @richardquest to fellowship with us this morning @JccKenya. May God minister to you as fellowship with us today,
In an interview with Capital FM yesterday morning, he urged Kenya to embrace same sex relationships to allow people live and work freely.
“And I can respect their point of view, I merely say that in this day and age, if you want to succeed, if you want Kenya to be a thriving, vibrant modern economy, you are going to look at this (homosexuality) in a different way and ask yourself what is it about these very successful places that we need to at least try to attract.
“That is the way you do it. You let people live their lives, love who they want and the way they wish,”
