KENYAN second lady Dorcas Rigathi has condemned queer relationships and called on teachers to discourage school children against LGBTQ.
Rigathi warned teachers in the country not to remain silent as queer relations take root in the country.
Speaking at a teachers’ conference at Chania Girls High School in Thika, Pastor Dorcas pointed out that many were afraid of speaking out against LGBTQ relationships, and this would be detrimental to the country and the values held by Kenyans.
“Teachers know what our children are undergoing in schools. There is homosexuality and lesbianism in schools, but we do not want to speak against it so we can look good, but when we allow this, we lose a generation,” said the second lady.
She was attending a conference that comprises teachers who also serve as chaplains in their respective schools, setting in motion her agenda for the nation even as preparations for the launch of the Strategic Framework for the Office of the Spouse of the Deputy President (OSDP) in February are underway.
Mrs Rigathi encouraged the teachers to remain vigilant in equipping the thousands of children in the country with the right values, saying that as a trained teacher and now a pastor, she could also be described with the title of ‘chaplain’.
“As teachers, you are highly privileged because of the many hours in your day available to influence the minds of thousands of children in Kenya. The teaching fraternity can define our morality and moral compass. Teachers are transforming agents through the words they speak to the children,” she added.
“Institutions are lacking enough human resources, such as chaplains, mentors, and counselors, and when I see all of you here, I see a hope for tomorrow and a future for our children,” said Mrs Rigathi
