‘I’ll Do It Again!’ Man who planted LGBTQ flag on Mt. Kenya vows



A man who planted the LGBTQ rainbow flag on Mt. Kenya, which now has since been brought down, has vowed to repeat the act as a sign of defiance.Taking to Twitter, @juelz_loverl, who, alongside his friend, a man only identified as Alex, planted the original flag back in 2019, said that he would repeat the act this same year, terming the act of pulling it down as ‘nonsense’.

“In 2019 we (Alex and I) put the (LGBTQ) flag up on Mt. Kenya. All this nonsense of it being taken down, I’ve decided 2023 I am going back up Mt. Kenya to put up the flag!” he tweeted.

A group of Kikuyu traditionalists pulled down the flag that was supposed to stand for the LGBTQ community over the weekend.

The group had been raising money for a month in order to climb the mountain and take down the flag under the name Booi wa Kirira Kia Mugikuyu, which is loosely translated to “the gathering for Kikuyu culture.”

On Friday, April 7, a group of around ten climbers headed up the mountain, and they returned on Sunday, April 9, carrying the said flag that was allegedly set ablaze in Naromoru, Kieni East Sub-county, Nyeri County.

Elder Kikuyu performed purification ceremonies after the event.

They said that the burnt-out flag’s ashes will be dumped into the river that empties into the Indian Ocean.
