Three Kenyan men, including a secondary school teacher, were on Tuesday arraigned at Kajiado Law Courts for allegedly engaging in gay sex.
Appearing before the court, George Sane, Dickens Ouma, and Martin Kithure were charged with the offense of engaging in an unnatural act contrary to Section 162(a) of the penal code.
The court was told that Sane, a teacher at Marhab Girls Secondary School in Kajiado, engaged in sex with Ouma and Kithure against their order of nature.
Ouma and Kithure, who are from Mombasa County, are said to have met Sane on Facebook before arranging for a date in Kajiado. Police said Sane agreed to pay each of the two men Sh10,000 for the sexual act.
After engaging in gay-sex, Sane allegedly refused to pay the agreed amount and insisted on paying half the price. Ouma and Kithure, who are in their early twenties, decided to report the matter at Kajiado Police Station on Sunday.
They were all arrested and locked up pending arraignment. Ouma and Kithure had traveled all the way from Mombasa to Kajiado to meet their date.
The three pleaded not guilty to the charges and were released on a cash bail of Sh100,000 each.
