President Obama pushes for Gay Rights in Keyna - VIDEO

NBC News reports

President Barack Obama urged equal rights for gays and lesbians in Africa during his first visit as commander-in-chief to Kenya, his father's homeland.

"When a government gets in the habit of treating people differently, those habits can spread," Obama said during a joint news conference Saturday with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kenyatta quickly dismissed the sensitive topic, calling it a "non-issue."

Gay rights are "not really an issue on the foremost mind of Kenyans. And that is a fact," he said. Like many African countries, Kenya outlaws homosexuality.
