Malawians have backed People’s Party (PP) spokesperson Ken Msonda after he was criticised over his Facebook post which urged citizens to kill gay people.
Msonda faced criticism from the Malawi Law Society (MLS) who described his comment as a hate speech.
MLS further called the country’s human rights body and Malawi Police to investigate the remarks made by Msonda.
Reacting through a story that Malawi24 carried, Malawians have sided with the PP spokesperson arguing that homosexual remain sinful.
“If our leaders were God fearing people they would be in same track with Ken! Devils! Malawi is facing hardships because of you! You are the ones leaders to be stoned,” wrote Amos Kaphwiti.
While Bright Dangayah wrote: “Yes, I absolutely agree with you Ken Msonda, These stupid gays must be killed, we don’t want this stupid behaviour in our beautiful nation, why making Malawi be America??? This is stupid Law Society.”
Other commenters, however, suggested that Msonda is being victimized for expressing his opinion.
“I agree with Msonda’s decision, I don’t see any problem of harassing Msonda for what he wrote on his Facebook page, it’s just his rights to express his views against that stupid malpractice,” wrote Rispar Tembo.
Meanwhile, investigations are yet to begin on Msonda for his views on same sex marriages in the country.
