Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza, the two gays arrested on December 28, 2009 for having a public gay engagement and still in police custody since then, are very sick.
This forced the Blantyre Magistrates Court to suspend court proceedings on Wednesday.
This happened when Chimbalanga started vomiting in court while Monjeza kept complaining of having a terrible headache.
The two are being subjected to intense public redicule that it seems the court cannot help on this, as witnessed by incidences where they are being booed in court while court officials watch helplessly.
On Monday, when the two appeared in court and state witnesses started giving first hand evidence, the two asked for permission to go to the loo. While in there, where they took four minutes, State Prosecutor Dickens Mwambazi told the crowd that gathered outside the toilet:
"These guys are taking long; they should not penetrate each other in there!"
The members of the public laughed.
