  1. You cannot have economic success as a continent without universal human rights, including those for LGBTs. By discriminating against LGBTs, you are losing key players in the economy. You won’t develop until you recognise the gay community

  2. Nonsensical summits just wasting tax payers money…what do these summits bring anyway….apart from delegates sleeping around with each other and prostitutes’, You hear about summits from January to December and signing useless MOUs…..What happened to the much publicized Dubai MOUs….
