Malawi Reviews Its Anti-Gay Laws

Written by

A few days ago, it was not sure but Malawi decided to review its anti-gay laws without repealing them.


According to VOA, Malawi’s law classifies homosexual behavior as "indecent practices and unnatural acts."

 

Solicitor General Anthony Kamanga told VOA that the decision to review the anti-homosexual law and other provisions was not an indication that Malawi was caving to international criticism.  He said the timing was coincidental. (Sure...)

"No, I wouldn’t say that we are caving to international pressure.  The debate in Malawi has been ongoing.  It’s just coincidental, I think, that it’s come around at the same time," Kamanga said.

Whatever, Malawi reviews the laws and that's great but the most important is the changes the government will do, and as we already know, it will not repeal any of the laws.
