The governor of Dar es Salaam has drawn up a list of people accused of homosexuality who could now be rounded up in Tanzania's latest anti-gay crackdown. Paul Makonda told reporters that he has formed a 17-member committee to investigate people who misuse social media by promoting prostitution and homosexual acts, and warned people to delete pornography from their phones.
