GABORONE – Botswana becomes the 19th country in the continent to decriminalise homosexuality.

Botswana’s high court, in a highly-anticipated verdict, on Tuesday ruled to decriminalise homosexuality, which is outlawed under the country’s 1965 penal code.

Judge Michael Elburu “set aside” the “provisions of a Victorian-era” and ordered the laws be amended.
