SUPPORT GROWS FOR GAY HATE MP

From Swazi Media Commentary Sun Nov 11 2012, 02:01:00

Swaziland gay hate MP Aaron Sotja Dladla is gaining support for his campaign to have homosexuality banned in the kingdom.

Last week he told the Swazi House of Assembly a law should be put in place to 'deal with' what he called 'this mushrooming anti-social' behaviour of gays and lesbians.

Now, the Weekend Observer, a newspaper in effect owned by King Mswati III, reports thatresidents in his constituency, 'have encouraged him to move a motion in parliament calling for the banning of homosexual tendencies'.

Dladla, a member of the fringe church group Jericho Red Gown, restated his stance against homosexuality to the newspaper. He has made a number of public statements expressing hatred of homosexuals.
