PRESIDENT M7 ON BAHATI HOMOSEXUALITY BILL & WHY HE WILL NOT SIGN THE HOMO BILL INTO LAW:


“I told foreign leaders that this bill was brought up by a private member and I have not even had time to discuss it with him. It is neither the Government nor the NRM party. It is a private member,……………..It is my judgment that our foreign policy is not managed just by some individuals. We have our values and our stand, historically and socially, but we need to know also that our partners we have been working with have their systems………………….the gay community in New York organized a rally and invited then President Bill Clinton.In that rally, about 300,000 homosexuals attended. I challenge you. Who of you, MPs, has ever had a rally of 300,000 people, other than me? Even for me, it is not often that I get those numbers.This is a foreign policy issue and we have to discuss it in a manner that does not compromise our principles but also takes care of our foreign policy interest”- President M7(12th January, 2010)
