He made this known during an interview on Skynews on Sunday.
“We have complained officially to the American government, and we are waiting for their response because we don’t want such people in our midst. We want him gone.”
Last month, U.S. Ambassador, Daniel Foote, had said he was “personally horrified” after the high court sentenced the two men and called on the government to reconsider laws that punish minority groups.
“We are saying no to homosexuality. When you are tying it to aid, if that is how you are going to bring your aid, then I’m afraid the west can leave us alone in our poverty. And we’ll continue scrounging and struggling.”
