Why do we hate gay people? By CHARLES ONYANGO-OBBO

If I may be permitted to tweak the title of the film No Country for Old Men, Africa is becoming “No Continent for Gays”.
Take Nigeria. President Goodluck Jonathan is besieged. He is facing a rebellion in his governing Democratic People’s Party (DPP) ahead of next year’s election.
Governors have been defecting from the PDP, and a few hours ago Jonathan sacked four ministers.
Meanwhile, the militant group Boko Haram has upped its terror and violent attacks and is slaughtering an average of 60 Nigerians a week.
Amid all this, Jonathan just found time to sign an anti-gay Bill, and in Lagos there have been reports of mobs beating down homosexuals.
In Zimbabwe, “Uncle” Bob Mugabe has had it in for gays for a long time.

For one, Ukraine has already burned the main international financial rescuer, the International Monetary Fund, by failing to keep to the terms of earlier bailouts from 2008 and 2010.
Now it needs help again, and its economic and financial problems are worse than before.
