After he said during a radio interview that Botswana should be killing gays, U.S. Pastor Steven Anderson was told to leave the country.

During his appearance on Gabz FM in the capital Gaborone, Anderson also defended statements he made in support of a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando where 49 people were killed.

“The good news is that at least fifty of these pedophiles are not going to be harming children anymore. The bad news is that a lot of the homos in the bar are still alive, so they’re going to continue to molest children and recruit people into their filthy homosexual lifestyle,” he said at the time.

In Tuesday's interview, Anderson said that the Orlando victims were “disgusting homosexuals who the Bible says were worthy of death.”

Anderson also said that he believes pedophiles and adulterers should be killed.

President Ian Khama told Reuters that Anderson was picked up at the radio station. “I said they should pick him up and show him out of the country. We don't want hate speech in this country. Let him do it in his own country.”

In a tweet Tuesday, the Botswana government said that Anderson was being deported because he had been declared “a prohibited immigrant.”

Local outlets reported that the Botswana immigration department was holding Anderson as it processes his deportation.

Earlier this month, South Africa barred Anderson from visiting the country.
