Gambian president Yahya Jammeh was speaking in the town of Basse in the west African country when he made his comments, related to the idea that gays and lesbians are seeking more tolerant pastures. "Some people go to the west and claim they are gays and that their lives are at risk in The Gambia, in order for them to be granted a stay in Europe," Jammeh said, according to the APA. "If I catch them I will kill them."
In that same speech, Jammeh also said that the British at least are skeptical of these claims and have begun conducting tests on travelers from the Gambia to confirm their sexual orientation.

In the same speech, Jammeh said, "We will fight these vermins called homosexuals or gays the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes, if not more aggressively."
...
Jammeh is, of course, not alone among African leaders in holding contemptible views towards homosexuality, though his are among the most outwardly abhorrent.

DAKAR, Senegal - Civil society groups have criticized prominent Senegalese musicians for statements supporting Gambian President Yahya Jammeh, whose government is notorious for human rights abuses.
The Democratic Union of Gambian Activists launched a campaign over the weekend to pressure musicians including Grammy-winning Youssou Ndour to avoid further visits with Jammeh, saying they were being used to "polish his image."
Organizer Pa Samba Jow said recent appearances and statements in support of Jammeh, which have received wide coverage in Gambia's state-run and pro-government media, amounted to "telling the Gambian people to go to hell."

It appeared to reflect a personal decision by Gambian President Yahya Jammeh, Ko said without elaborating.
In 1994, Jammeh grabbed power of Gambia, a popular beach destination for British tourists. Human rights groups have accused the government of killing and torturing civilians in recent years and Jammeh has become increasingly isolated. Earlier this year, he announced that Gambia would be withdrawing from the Commonwealth, a collection of 54 nations made up largely of former British colonies.
