Since Commonwealth Countries could have to grant more LGBT rights to fight against HIV, the former president of Botswana and head of the government-backed Aids Council would wishes that homosexuality be decriminalized.

In an interview with BBC’s Africa Network, Festus Mogae said: "I don’t understand it [homosexuality]. I am a heterosexual. I look at women. I don’t look at other men. But there are men who look at other men. These are citizens. To protect them and their clients from being infected [with HIV], you have to assist them to protect themselves. I don’t think by arresting them you help them."
