July 31, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – Homosexuality will not be accepted in southern Sudan should the south become independent after a referendum due to take place next year the regions President Salva Kiir Mayardit told Dutch radio on Friday.

In the interview with Radio Netherlands Worldwide Kiir said:

"It [homosexuality] is not in our character [...] it is not there and if anybody wants to import it to Sudan [...] it will always be condemned by everybody."

Kiir ‘promised democracy, equality and justice for all in Southern Sudan’ but made an exception for homosexuals saying that gay people would not be accepted.

The issue of homosexuality is a taboo throughout the continent and many African states have legislated laws to make it a crime.

    Finally something that makes sense to Southerners. I applaud the president for being explicit about this moral decay and abomination to humanity. It is unnatural to pursue a person of the same sex. Even animals don’t do this and neither should human beings. It is a western construct that has no place in the rest of the world. Thank you, Kiir for not mincing words on this issue. Case closed.

      Watches the whiteman evile question.

      Exporting theirs ideas into Africa. African needs to talk some they knew exactly. It is white world abuse nature and Arabic world case. It does not a have a name either in our society. It is not political to issues to be answer. It is just another exporting their abusive discrimination to everyone round the world.

      Africa have their own traditional way of doing things,they solve their own married by their own way. They are just trying to influence African of their behavious of discriminating. Or attempting to recruit innocence African who does not know of what is behind it.

      Those who have been born natural with femal and male organ in Africa can not be discriminated due to their creature. white just wanted to put their evile Ideas on African people. Unles if someone wanted to married that woman. It is the relative issues and traditional African Court case if somebody maried case or crime commited.

      I do not think,it is the easy question for African to understand it well. There is meaning of it to discuss in African political. Might be the evile is coming down on African mind. That language should be keep away from African agenda and keep reffer to tradtional way of doing and answer. That case is not a new technology or skills of doing to be adopted. This is good for traditional people to answer it. That is a white people behaviour in their commuinties.

    praise be to the Lord and bless be to those who fear GOD in the highest. our GOD was not a stupid creator when he create woman alongside Adam, her name was EVA. Our belove president General Salva kiir said what we need to hear. no room at all for gays or lesbians in the land in which two millions of our love ones perished. we may transport democracy somewhere if anybody thinks he or she has democracy and we don’t, but we will not transport Gays and lesbians into our land said our president and the law of our land too.

    I know some Dnika Bor gays in chicago. they are healthy and fine with it, one told me and advise not to mention his name that in their cultures, boys are allowed to practice things with each other until when they are fit for marriage and boys are ok to shave down their sisters and mum, its fine. He told me " most of the huge guys in their community are gays, they have been doing it that is why they gain power of building their body" He mentioned to Beng Dr John Garang, " Garang use to have lot of fun with his beloved house boy when his wife Rebecca isn’t around and she knew it, she didn’t have problem with it either.
