Gay-bashing US pastor banned from entering SA

Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has denied controversial American pastor Steven Anderson entry into South Africa ahead of his scheduled visit later this month.

The department has withdrawn Anderson's Visa exemptions over comments that constitute hate speech, reports EWN's Kevin Brandt.

Anderson has come under fire for his homophobic comments and attack on religious leaders who support equal rights, creating an uproar from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LBGTI) community.

Gigaba has questioned the intentions of those who had extended an invitation to Anderson for his "evangelical crusade."

Gigaba explains that Anderson will have to apply for Visa to visit South Africa in the future and it will only be granted on the basis that he has shown remorse and made a public apology.

Earlier today, Anderson bashed Archbishop Desmond Tutu for his pro-gay stance and caused a stir on-air.
