Malawi is no haven for homosexuals- Govt

Information and Civic Education Minister, Symon Vuwa-Kaunda, says Malawi will not bow down to donor pressure and legalise homosexuality.
Kaunda's sentiments come hardly four days after Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister, George Chaponda and Presidential Spokesperson Hetherwick Ntaba, also raised similar sentiments in Malawi's capital, Lilongwe.
"Homosexuality is against our culture; indeed, there is no place for homosexuals in Malawi," Kaunda told Zachimalawi today in a brief interview.
Development partners such as the Federal Republic of Germany, United States of America, Norway, Britain, and the African Development Bank have been on government's neck, imploring it to respect minority rights.
"We will not listen to these donors on this 'evil' topic," said Kaunda.
