DODOMA, TANZANIA,Tanzanian Minister for Home Affairs (Interior) Mwigulu Nchemba has reiterated that the government will arrest and take to court any person found campaigning for, or supporting, homosexuality.

All non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which have been using human rights as a facade to campaign for homosexuality must find better things to do, or get ready to face the music with their regards to their support for homosexual tendencies, he said Sunday.

He added that he fully supported President John Magufuli in making sure that society respects the norms and Tanzanian traditional way of life, including the fight against early pregnancies among schoolgirls.

Speaking during a fundraising ceremony for the construction of a charity in Dodoma Municipality, he said: I would like to use this opportunity to remind and warn all organizations and institutions that campaign and pretend to protect homosexual interests we are going to arrest whoever is involved and charge them in courts of law.

The minister warned that any NGO campaigning for homosexual interests would be de-registered.

He also said pregnancies among schoolgirls and homosexuality were against Tanzanian traditions and norms and that the government stands firm in fighting them. Tanzanians who are interested in homosexuality and early pregnancies must seek citizenship elsewhere, where such practices are entertained, but not on Tanzanian soil.

Those who are interested in homosexuality should go and live in countries that entertain such businesses if there's any organization in the country that supports and campaigns for homosexuality it shall be deregistered, he said.

He added that any foreigner living within this country and who is conducting such campaign risks arrest and deportation. I can assure you if we find a foreigner conducting this campaign, he or she will be deported within no time they will not have even the time to unplug their mobile phones from the socket, he warned.
