Leading Kenyan gay author to get married

Leading Kenyan author Binyavanga Wainaina has tweeted that he will get married to his boyfriend in South Africa.

The 47-year-old author, who won the 2002 Caine Prize for African writing for his short story Discovering Home, has not named his boyfriend.

In 2014, he came out publicly as gay, making him one of the most high-profile Africans to do so.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Kenya and he would not be allowed to marry there.

South Africa has one of the most liberal constitutions in the world, and recognises same-sex marriages.
