A lot of people have voiced out their thoughts about Tanzania's anti-gay laws. This comes after the African country shocked many after it was revealed that a task force had been set up to arrest LGBT people in the city.

The public was also told to report suspected gay men to the police. Concerned people have taken to various social media platforms to express shock and concern about this matter. Some have even shared that they won't be visiting the country until the situation has been dealt with, while others have called on the president of South Africa, and other political leaders to do something. 

So, what can we do as a collective to make sure that people's basic human rights are not infringed? Well, we simply need to let people be who they are, without judging. 

One person who agrees with this is singer and pastor Khaya Mthethwa. When asked about his views on how the church should treat homosexuals, Khaya, who was first introduced to Mzansi on Idols a few years ago, said during an interview on Metro FM in July this year: “I think the church must stop picking and choosing what’s right for them and really focus on the message of the cross and loving people and allowing people to be who they are and allowing God to minister into their lives.” Listen to the interview below:

Last year, Khaya got married to former Miss South Africa, Ntando and their relationship has been in the spotlight. Many a time, the media personality honours his wife with sweet messages.
