Gambian President Yahya Jammeh Threatens to Slit the Throats of Gay Men

Yahya Jammeh

Gambian President, Yahya Jammeh is well-know for being very vocal about his homophobic views.

In his latest outburst, he threatened to slit the throats of gay men.

Washington Post reports that during a rally in the town of Farafeni, Jammeh said the following in regard to homosexuality:

“If you do it [in Gambia] I will slit your throat,” Jammeh said. “If you are a man and want to marry another man in this country and we catch you, no one will ever set eyes on you again, and no white person can do anything about it.”

According to reports, in 2008, Jammeh said he would cut off the heads of gay people. And in 2013, he reportedly stated:

“Homosexuality is anti-god, anti-human, and anti-civilization. Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born. I have buffaloes from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this. Allowing homosexuality means allowing satanic rights. We will not allow gays here.”

Just last year, the European Union cut aid to Gambia due to what has been described as the country’s deplorable human rights record, which included the country’s introduction in October of a tough anti-homosexuality law that could lead to life sentences in prison.

      I have always said it! Straight men (trust me I know a lot of them) do not care about gay people and what they do with their lives. At the end of the day, your relationship and sex life is not threatened in any way, shape of form by what happens in others’ bedrooms. This kind of condemnation and vitriol always comes from self-hating and closet gay men who mistake their weakness for masculinity.

    “If you are a man and want to marry another man in this country …”

    Seems like this hatred for same-sex unions is typically targeted at men. Do women get a free pass? Or will their throats also be subjected to the blade?

    Meanwhile…just this month, Gambia’s inflation reached a record high with the country dipping into a potentially severe recession….but let’s not talk about that….and let’s not talk about how this Jammeh dude is currently the richest Gambian in the country and how majority of Gambians are living from hand to mouth….NO NO! Let’s just focus on murdering gay men.

    I really don’t know why people haven’t come to understand that we are different and unique.everyone has the right to love whoever they want……it is all same love.homosexuality maybe uncommon but it is normal. The president should develop his countrt.gay ppl are not his problem.misplaced priority mtcheeeeerrw.

    Criminal Gambian buffoon. How did idiots like this come to be leaders. I suppose his character is a reflection of his docile subordinates. He’s crunched Gambian economy, and like most other foolish African rulers (not leaders), he has resulted to distracting the docile populace from issues mostly affecting them. I hope his ugly race rots in hell. Yahya Jammeh is as ugly as sin.

    This is one thing ignorance cause, you can dislike something but coming on a national TV to say this is barbaric. I wonder the kind of leaders we have in this part of the world. Leaders and Kings don’t talk ‘ANYHOW’ but its a pity that its the other way round in Africa.
    I shame for this guy.

      Even going so far as referring to them as “leaders” just denigrates that word.

      “Autocrats”, “despots”, “psychopaths”, “tyrants”.., “villains” even… These are the sorts of descriptions to use for men such as these that STEAL an entire country’s inheritance and have the gall to regard themselves as the rightful dispensers of God’s Justice…

    On a lighter note, the guy is sweating like a Christmas goat to the slaughter! As for the gays this and that, personally for me, we all have to face our lives when the day of judgement comes, for now I say live and let live and let he without sin cast the first stone! However in my own space, its no for me.

    While I don’t support killing anyone, homosexuality and the likes are bad habits that are learned (you weren’t born like that, talk true naa) and can be un-learned. I grew up believing in eating everything in sight but that doesn’t make it right (oyibo call am foodie abii na large appetite) but I have to un-learn that habit. Oyibo people have a name for everything, must you accept it? You can change if you want to…If you are liking your same sex (hian!), I believe you can adjust. Abii, in the pre-clonial days..did you hear of this kind same sex thing? Try it, if the deity of the land does not answer you!!! It is not everything you see that is good and I believe you know that already. That being said, if you have these “homo” tendencies, you can change while loving yourself through the process. Impossible is nothing, nothing is impossible.

    I can’t believe some people are supporting this nonsense. Slit the throats of gay people? What about thieves like him? Or paedophiles? Or human and drug traffickers? All the atrocities out there na homosexuality dey pain una pass.
    ‘Homosexuality is ungodly’, slitting people’s throats is?

    Anyway, I’ve learnt that the most violently homophobic people are often closeted homosexuals themselves and try so hard to supress that. So this man may be secretly gay sef. Nonsense,
