Just hours after a homosexual man came out daring government to either give them their rights or kill them, spokesperson for opposition People’s Party (PP) has urged the people of Malawi to lynch gays.
In a post he made on Facebook, PP spokesperson Kenneth Msonda said that gays do not deserve any human rights but they should be killed.
“My personal opinion is that sin shouldn’t be legalised,” argued Msonda whose party neutralised the laws that criminalise homosexuality when they were in power.
Msonda made it clear that he was commenting on the issue as an individual and not a party spokesperson.
“Gays do not deserve human rights, they deserve to be killed,” Msonda argued.
The remarks by Msonda have been met by stern criticism from various Malawians including author Stanley Kenani who lambasted Msonda over the remarks.
However, some people have argued that legalising homosexuality will make people take up arms and lynch homosexuals as per Msonda’s advice.
Media reports on Saturday showed that a grouping of gays in the Southern region have dared the government to give them their full rights or purge them if it cannot.
