Atheists in Kenya have announced that they will oppose the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

In a press release on Tuesday, AIK chairperson Harrison Mumia said the society tabled its proposals to the BBI task force but all their requests were neglected and were never incorporated in the final report.

Mumia said since their proposals have been neglected, the society will rally its members to oppose the document that was launched yesterday at Bomas of Kenya.

“Despite us sending our proposals to the BBI task force on February 27, 2020, none was incorporated in the final document. We will rally the atheist’s community in Kenya to reject the BBI report,” the society said in a statement.

 

Mumia said they made a number of proposals on family and marriage mater calling for the abolishment of Article 170 on Kadhi’s court but none made it to the final report.

The society called for recognition of lesbians, gays, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals.

However, the views of AIK were not incorporated in the BBI final report, according to the group.

On the abolishment of the Kadhis Court, the anti-religion group argued that their aim was to ensure that the government and church are separate entities.
