An Investigation of Factors that Contribute to Homosexuality within the African Context
Keywords:Homosexuality, Sexuality, Kamba, African Cultures, FGM, Polygamy
Homosexuality is a practice that has received global attention in recent years. Some nations in the world have advocated and legalised it, but others have strongly denounced the practice viewing it as a threat to society’s well-being and moral foundation. This study investigates practices promoting homosexuality, including polygamy, the Kamba cultural marriage of Kaweto, Female Genital Mutilation, and other factors like same-sex boarding schools. The study argues that although cultural practices like polygamy, FGM, and Kamba cultural marriage of Kaweto had no association with homosexuality, they are increasingly seen as practices that enhance homosexuality. The qualitative study used interview-guided questions.
