Homosexuality was not a criminal offence in Africa before the colonizers came – Bisi Alimi says

Bisi Alimi has said that homosexuality was not a crime in Africa until the colonizers came and introduced Christianity.

The gay rights activist added that one cannot demand for decolonization of Africa while also being against homosexuality.

He wrote: 

History 101; not one single African was a Christian before encounter with the colonisers. Homosexuality was not a criminal offence in Africa before the colonisers came. You can’t demand decolinising Africa and be homophobic at same time. Choose a side.
