Tanzania: Police Arrest 10 Suspected Gays For Organizing Same-sex Marriage by BrainnewsNg(f): 11:07am On Nov 08
Ten men have been arrested on suspicion of being gay on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar after police received a “tip-off” from members of the public about a same-sex marriage taking place, Amnesty International has revealed.

The arrests come after a prominent Tanzanian politician last week called on the public to report the names of suspected gay men to the police – comments subsequently denounced by the government.

“This is a shocking blow following the Tanzanian government’s assurance that no one would be targeted and arrested because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity,” said Seif Magango, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for East Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes.

“This appalling attack on Tanzanian people simply exercising their human rights shows the danger of inflammatory and discriminatory rhetoric at senior levels of government.

“We now fear these men may be subjected to forced anal examination, the government’s method of choice for ‘proving’ same-sex sexual activity among men. This must not be allowed to happen – these men must be released immediately.”

The 10 men were arrested when police raided a party at Pongwe Beach, Zanzibar on Saturday night (3 November). Six others at the event fled.

The 10 are being held at Chakwa police station in Unguja, despite no charges being brought against them.

Amnesty International has established that the men were arrested for allegedly conducting a gay marriage, with police saying they found the men sitting in pairs “two by two”.

“It is mind-boggling that the mere act of sitting in a pair can assume criminal proportions. The police clearly have no grounds to file charges against these men in court, despite arresting them three days ago,” said Seif Magango.

Background

On 29 October, Dar es Salaam’s Regional Commissioner Paul Makonda announced plans to form a government taskforce to hunt down people believed to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI), due to begin its “work” on 5 November.

On Sunday 4 November, the Government of Tanzania, through its Ministry of Foreign Affairs, distanced itself from Makonda’s remarks terming them “personal opinion”.

Should we extend the freedom to people who would like to bring their chicken, goats, stones and all other objects to the pastor for marriage rites? If yes, what would we be teaching our kids and if everyone emulates these how will the human race continue?

From wanting everyone to accept gay;they now wanted marriage & for the word marriage to be redefined to suit their strange desires;from marriage they still wanted to have babies( from straight people oo)& expect one to accept it a child having two dads other two mums.;now they are involving gay couples/family/queerlove into every modern day movies and even cartoons for our young ones;& still expect us to accept it.Tufia.Chukwu aju.
End times we are in indeed.

You can't and won't understand because of these reasons:

1. Like an average Nigerian, you've been brainwashed by religion.

2. You're shallow minded, immature and lack proper exposure that conditions people's minds to freedom and compassion.

3. You reduce sexuality to sexual acts alone. Sexuality is inherent in every human and nothing below and above the cloud can change it. Sexual act is physical activity of having sex, whether you're gay, straight or bi. There are straight people who are celibate, the same goes for gays.

4. The lack of focus and dereliction of duties from our govt, especially in Africa, has made Africans intellectually deficient to the point that we prioritise unnecessary issues to the detriment of important ones. Otherwise, you can begin to ask yourself how related to economic development, job creation and national wealth what consenting adults do in their privacy.

5. Lack of empathy for fellow humans, even though we all claim to be religious and righteous, (although not godly) has really damaged our efforts at nation building and respect for humanity.


6. Hypocrisy is ingrained in every Nigerian. We hate what we hate without questions and love what we love the same way. It is easy to castigate others for their perceived flaws, while we do same or worse things in private. I bet you would boast of having premarital sex even though our 'cultures' and your so called religion forbids it. People only choose what law or rule to obey, depending on the part of divide they find themselves.

7. Lastly, if you discovered your beloved close relation (son or daughter, brother or sister,) is gay, would you keep quiet, cut off their head or report them to the Police? That's a poser for you!

A man should not be intimidated by a homosexual. By that I mean, those people who set out to preach “fire and brimstone,” the beating and harassing of homosexuals and lesbians, in most cases are people that fear for a dormant personality that might come forth from themselves.
If you are sure about your manhood or womanhood, then you should have no fear of socializing or befriending a person with different sexual preferences than you. The very fear is a confession that if you were to socialize with a homosexual or lesbian you’re afraid you might become
a homosexual or a lesbian
