Kenyans react to Obama 'blunt' stance on gay rights

In an exclusive BBC interview President Barack Obama has said he will deliver a "blunt message" to African leaders about discrimination and gay rights as he visits Kenya and Ethiopia

Mr Obama said he was "not a fan of discrimination" and said gay and lesbians were among those who deserve "fair treatment, equal treatment in the eyes of the law and the state".

BBC Pop Up, currently in Kenya, spoke to residents of Nairobi about their reaction to Mr Obama's remarks.
