Former spokesman of Peoples Party, Ken Msonda has dropped a legal suit with political cadre Gerrald Kampanikiza whom he identified as former Peoples Party secret service.
Msonda was annoyed that Kampanikiza had posted on Facebook that he had received K12 million bribe from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party for him to leave the party.
However, people advised him against going to court on the issue and Msonda wrote that he had taken the advice from his friends on the matter.
Many observers reacting to Msonda’s quitting of PP claim he has ‘eaten a big bun’ from DPP to shut him up.
Msonda is known for making headlines when he demanded that homosexuals be killed after the justice minister Samuel Tembenu put a temporary prohibition on anti-homosexual laws,
He also called on government to clarify its stance on homosexuality.
“Government should come up clear on the DPP [Democratic Progressive Party] administration’s stand on the issue of gays and lesbians,” Msonda said.
He described homosexuals as being worse than dogs and that gays and lesbians were “sons and daughters of the devil”.
“Arresting them won’t address this problem because sooner or later they are being released on bail. The best way to deal with this problem is to KILL them!” he wrote.
Msonda is not the first African politician to have openly discriminated against homosexuals. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has previously expressed his view on homosexuality, describing gays as being “worse than pigs and dogs”.
