Gambian President: ‘Homosexuality more deadly than all natural disasters put together’
Gambia’s President has used his address to the United Nations General Assembly to attack gay people, calling homosexuality one of the three “biggest threats to human existence”.
President Yahya Jammeh said homosexuality, greed and obsession with world domination “are more deadly than all natural disasters put together.”
President Jammeh has almost made outlandish remarks about HIV, announcing that he had found a natural remedy to “cure” the virus in 2007.
Same-sex sexual activity in the country is punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment.
