If you are a parent, especially in Nairobi, you are warned to mark next Saturday on your calendar because it could be the ultimate nightmare for parents raising teenage children. In what could be an indication of a new level of exploitation by adults luring underage children to house parties that offer alcohol, drugs and sex orgies, promoters of an event have been circulating an invitation on social media that promises to be the "most epic of all time".

India's top court on September 6 scrapped a colonial-era law that punished gay sex with up to 10 years in jail, raising hopes among activists worldwide, including in Africa, for similar reforms elsewhere. The constitutional division of Kenya's High Court will hear submissions from both parties on October 25 on the relevance of India's decision to Kenya, given that both countries have shared the law - dating back to the days of British colonial rule - that criminalises "sexual acts against the order of nature". Homosexuality is taboo across much of Africa and gay people face discrimination or persecution.
