The Advocates for Human Rights, along with The Eagles for Life and Sign Ishara, submitted a Suggested List of Issues on the rights of LGBTI persons in Kenya for the 128th Session of the Human Rights Committee.
The Government of Kenya fails uphold its obligations under the International Covenant for Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The State Party’s legislation does not meet the standards set forth in the ICCPR. Kenya fails to protect LGBTI individuals from acts of violence, harassment, abuse, and discrimination based on their sexual orientation. The State Party fails to hold accountable members of law enforcement and vigilante groups who harass and abuse members of the LGBTI community. The State Party fails to protect LGBTI persons with disabilities.
The authors of the report of the list of issues suggest serval questions for the Government of Kenya:
