We will not allow homosexuality in our society as it violates our religious and cultural beliefs,” he said during a church service in irobi on Sunday.
Ruto also assured complete support by the government to religious communities opposing the introduction of same sex relations in the Kenyan society, Xinhua news agency reported.
