Second lady Dorcas Gachagua has called out teachers for pretending not to know about lesbianism and homosexuality existing in schools.

Dorcas says most teachers hide such information to protect the name of the school at the expense of losing a generation.

"Teachers know what our children are undergoing in schools. There is homosexuality and lesbianism in schools but we do not want to speak about it so we can look good, and when we allow this we lose a generation.

She further pointed out mental illness saying people should not assume such ailments only affects some people.

" Whether you are a Christina, Muslim, or Hindu. Rich or poor. The problem of mental health is real.

Every one of us has been affected."

Ali took to Twitter to share his sentiments over the contentious issue on Tuesday, following a week-long storm on social media following the murder of LGBTQ activist and fashionista Edwin Chiloba.

He said homosexuality is illegal in Kenya and God does not like it.

“Homophobic and hate-based rhetoric by leaders and sensationalisation of Edwin Chiloba’s murder by the media only serves to incite violence against queer Kenyans,” they said.

The rights groups include the Bold Network, the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, the Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya, Initiative for Equality and Non-Discrimination, Q-Initiative, Amnesty and
