Nairobi, Monday

Tanzania has threatened to arrest and deport those campaigning for gay rights and deregister organisations protecting homosexual interests, local media reported.

“I would like to remind and warn all organisations and institutions that campaign and pretend to protect homosexual interests ... we are going to arrest whoever is involved and charge them in courts of law,” the state-owned Daily News quoted Interior Minister Mwigulu Nchemba as saying.

In the country’s latest attack on its homosexual community, Nchemba also said foreigners involved in such campaigns would be “deported within no time ... they will not have even the time to unplug their mobile phones from the socket.”

“Those who are interested in homosexuality should go and live in countries that entertain such businesses. If there’s any organisation in the country that supports and campaigns for homosexuality ... it shall be deregistered.”

Nchemba’s comments come just days af ter President John Magufuli slammed NGOs who campaign for gay rights, saying they should be countered even if this meant losing foreign aid. -AFP
