Tanzania: Health Minister threatens to publish list of homosexuals 1

Tanzania Deputy Minister of Health, Hamisi Kigwangalla has threatened on Twitter to publish the list of homosexuals involved in the prostitution trade.

The minister’s announcement comes after the closure of health centers specialized in the fight against HIV / AIDS, which are accused of promoting homosexuality, which is illegal in the country.

On Thursday, the government announced the closure of dozens of private health centers specializing in the fight against AIDS, accused of promoting homosexuality across Tanzania.

Last year, the government launched raids against gays in bars and clubs in Dar-Es-Salaam, the country’s economic capital of nearly 10 million.

The announcement came after the governor of Dar Es Salaam published a press release on the list of drug traffickers and dealers.
