There was a lot of expectation at Kenya’s high court on Friday morning as activists waited for a ruling on whether a law criminalising gay sex was unconstitutional.

The BBC’s Ferdinand Omondi was in the packed court room when a judge, Chacha Mwita, announced a postponement.

“The files are above my height… we are still working,” AFP reports him as saying.

Our reporter said the activists were not happy.

Another journalist tweeted that the activists were determined to fight on.

Some are upset about the postponement, but many are also using the news as an opportunity to say that they believe gay sex should remain illegal.
