Bowing To International Pressure Botswana Legalizes Homosexuality
European countries are actively;y trying to promote homosexuality among Africans.

AFRICANGLOBE – Botswana’s High Court has overturned a law criminalizing homosexuality. Under section 164 of Botswana’s Penal Code, same sex relations was an offense that carried a maximum sentence of seven years’ imprisonment.

The case was brought to court in March by Letsweletse Motshidiemang, a 21-year-old student at the University of Botswana, who argued that society had changed and that homosexuality was more widely accepted, The Tswana Times reported.

In March, the court postponed a ruling on the issue after an unnamed applicant challenged two sections of the penal code.

Botswana joins Angola, Mozambique and Seychelles who have scrapped anti-homosexual laws in recent years.

The ruling comes weeks after Kenya’s High Court refused to scrap laws criminalising homosexuality.
