Barack Obama has called on African nations to treat homosexual people equally under the law in his first presidential visit to his father’s homeland.

The US President likened gay rights to the American civil rights movement when he was asked about the issue in Kenya’s capital.

In a joint news conference with his Kenyan counterpart, Mr Obama said he was “painfully aware of the history when people are treated differently under the law”.

He said gay rights “is not really an issue on the foremost mind of Kenyans. And that is a fact”.
