A Malawian politician demands that gays and lesbians be killed

Kill Gays Says Politician

11 January 2016

Over in Africa's Malawi, virtually immediately after the country's justice minister, Samuel Tembenu put a temporary prohibition on anti-homosexual laws earlier this year, a local politician climbed on the anti-gay bandwagon and demanded that homosexuals be killed.

Ken Msonda, who is the spokesperson for the former ruling Peoples Party (PP), also called on the Malawian government to clarify its stance on homosexuality.

Msonda reportedly wrote on his Facebook page.:
"Government should come up clear on the DPP [Democratic Progressive Party] administration's stand on the issue of gays and lesbians,"

“Arresting them won’t address this problem because sooner or later they are being released on bail. The best way to deal with this problem is to KILL them!”

He then followed Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe's example and described homosexuals as being worse than dogs and that gays and lesbians were "sons and daughters of the devil".
