YAHYA Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh, the devout Muslim despot who rules Gambia, sent out a stark warning to gay people when he addressed parliament this week: do not ever visit the country or ‘you will regret why you are born’ (sic).
Described as a "demented megalomaniac", Jammah branded homosexuality "satanic", as well as "anti-God, anti-human, and anti-civilisation"..
Accordng to this report, the lunatic declared:
I have never seen a homosexual chicken, or turkey… I have buffalos from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other.
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 also stated he was undeterred by threats of the UK and US government to cut aid to countries which persecutes LGBT people, saying, defiantly:
We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this. Allowing homosexuality means allowing satanic rights. We will not allow gays here.
Jammeh once claimed to have developed a cure for AIDS that involved an herbal body rub and bananas.
Under Gambian law, same sex acts are punishable by a 14-year prison term.
