NAIROBI, July 23 (CWN) Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are again attempting to introduce sex education into Kenyan schools. In a joint statement yesterday, the country’s Catholic and protestant leaders asked the government to stop the actions. They stated “The subject is from time to time sneaked into schools through all sorts of disguised titles such as guidance and counselling, adolescent health, (and) life planning skills.” They also said that the churches have a duty to protect the people and not allow foreign ideas to be dumped in Kenya.
Bishop John Njue, chairman of the Catholic bishop’s conference, said that “The government should not give in to pressure from donors and those who want to use Kenyans for experiment. Let them stay with their money if it means degrading citizens.”
