Your Excellency, on July 2015, 19 high school students from Kibabii High School in Western Kenya were expelled from school for engaging in Homosexuality, which is at any point Immoral in Africa and parties engaged are considered “CURSED”. I bring it to your notice with hopes that this finds you well. The life of these students in Kenya and Africa will never be the same as they will ever feel stigmatized, and more so rejected in other schools they wish to join.
Your Excellency, the expelled students’ hope only lies in your hands. On their behalf, I write requesting the United States of America to offer the 19 students full Scholarships to forge ahead with their academies in the US.
Your Excellency having supported the Supreme Court ruling on Gayism and Lesbianism Rights as victory in America just a month ago, I strongly believe that you can accord them great help.
Instead of them loitering on the streets, or joining terrorist groups, i recommend they progress with their academics in the USA by the full support of your government.
Your Excellency. I look forward to your consideration in awarding Scholarships to the 19 students.
Thank you in advance.
THE PRESIDENT, KIBABII UNIVERSITY, SGC
