US President Barack Obama has said while in Kenya he will deliver his “blunt message” to African leaders about gay rights and discrimination.
“I am not a fan of discrimination and bullying of anybody on the basis of race… religion… sexual orientation or gender,” he said.
Mr Obama was talking ahead of a trip to his ancestral home of Kenya.
The visit also demonstrated US commitment to fighting terror in East Africa, he said.
It will be his first visit to Kenya since becoming president.
He will also become the first US leader to address the African Union when he travels on to Ethiopia on Sunday.BBC
