Gambian madman threatens to behead gays

Certainly a lot of attention has been paid to Robert Mugabe’s attempts to starve to death people in opposition strongholds as well as the more general terror tactics against those in engaging in the Re-Liberation Struggle.

But another lunatic seems to be flying under the radar.

Last year, Gambia’s dictator Yahya Jammeh descended into farce when he had the power to cure AIDS.

Jammeh’s rantings have taken a more sinister turn. Last week, the longtime military leader gave gays in the tiny nation 24 hours to leave the country. Those that remained, he said, risked being beheaded.

A spokesperson for the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Council said that Jammeh’s ravings were "doubly disgraceful" because The Gambia is the host country for the African Commission on Human and People's Rights.
