The Senagal Justice Minister backed away from his previous support for gay rights, saying there will be no push to legalize homosexuality.

Pink News reports:

Senegal’s New Justice Minister Sidiki Kaba has ruled out legalising homosexuality in the country despite previously being a gay rights supporter and activist. Kaba, who was previously the head of the International Federation for Human Rights, told reporters on Friday that he had dropped his opposition to the persecution of gay and lesbian people. He said: “I am a minister of justice who works in the context of a government and who expresses his views through those of the head of state which apply to all those who serve under him.”

Africa is such a terrible place to be gay in general, and it seems to get worse every year.
