The Governor of the city of Dar-es-Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania, has created a list of 200 allegedly gay people, which he now threatens with criminal prosecution. “I know that this action will not please some countries,” said the Governor, Paul Makonda. But he could not sit back and enable people to behave “wrong”, just because some countries “approve of this type of behavior”. Homosexuality is illegal in Tanzania, in a conviction of up to 30 years in prison.

Makonda had called on the population to the names of allegedly gay people to submit. He had so far received over 19,000 names, he said. From this he compiled the list of 200 people. If your homosexuality’ll prove it, you would be charged.

The list is another step in the years-long repression of non-heterosexual people in Tanzania. According to the human rights organization Human Rights Watch policy is threatening politicians in the country for 2016 Homosexuals with imprisonment. In addition, the government water has been banned based lube and centers closed, health advice and help for homosexuals and sex workers and skilled workers. For years, people would be arrested for their sexuality and forced examinations of the Anus exposed to criticise the human rights activists. The President of Tanzania, John Magufuli, said in July 2016, “even cows reject homosexuality”.

homosexuality is illegal in many countries in Africa, in both Christian as well as Muslim. In many of these countries, homosexuals are prosecuted sexual.
