Kiharu MPKiharu MP Irungu Kang’ata is a man of many controversies, the latest being his campaign to stop President Barrack Obama from addressing gay rights during his upcoming visit to Kenya.

“We are not prepared to accept, hear or listen to anyone lecturing us on how our culture is good or bad,” he said.
