‘Prime Minister Odinga should apologise over anti-gay statements’ 2010-12-09 “…in a country where policing is often understood as a community affair and where public lynching is tolerated both by the police and the public, the call to arrest gays by none other than Odinga sanctions discrimination and violence.”

Africa: Gay rights 2010-09-22 “It may have been the first time an African couple was arrested because they held an engagement party. In a part of the world where engagement and marriage are momentous occasions and a cornerstone of adulthood, the union of two men in Malawi last December, however, created an uproar that made headlines around the world.
