From The Point for Freedom and Democracy:
Speaking last Thursday at a victory celebration held at the Buffer Zone in Tallinding, President Jammeh said that a legislation“stricter than those in Iran” concerning the vice would be introduced very soon.Read it all here.
He maintained that The Gambia is a country of believers, noting that such sinful and immoral exploits as homosexuality would not be tolerated in this country.
He avowed that he would “cut off the head” of any homosexual caught in The Gambia.
The Gambian leader gave orders that thenceforth, any hotel or lodge housing a homosexual be closed down, further warning that if found in any compound, the landlord would be in deep trouble.
The President said his joy over the victory celebration is marred by the realisation that no one is helping him to make The Gambia the best place.
If the Anglican Communion is serious when it says that just because a person doesn’t want gay bishops doesn’t make them homophobic, and that its leaders really are against discrimination and persecution, then we should fairly quickly receive a statement from the relevant province decrying the president’s intentions.
If it isn’t forthcoming, we will have to conclude that they are fibbing.
