The Gambian president has compared gay people to satanic rights, destroying civilization, and buffalo sex.
Yahya Jammeh was speaking at the opening of the country’s Parliament in Banjul in the presence of foreign diplomats.
While the focus was the government’s zero tolerance against murder, drug trafficking, corruption and tribalism, he also used the speech to send out a warning to gay people.
As reported by the Gambian anti-repression news source Freedom Newspaper, Jammeh said he has no regrets about his anti-gay policy.
He said: ‘Homosexuality is anti-humanity. I have never seen homosexual chicken, or turkey.
‘If you are convicted of homosexuality in this country, there will be no mercy for offenders. We will put you in the female wing of the prison.’
Jammeh added: ‘We want the population to grow. There will be children in this country.
‘Homosexuality is anti-god, anti-human, and anti-civilization. Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born.
‘I have buffalos from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this.
