Statement on Bonela Ruling

GALZ welcomes the Botswana Court of Appeal’s ruling today on the registration of the Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexuals of Botswana (LEGABIBO).

GALZ stands with LEGABIBO and other human rights defenders working to promote and protect the rights and interests of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community in Africa.

We applaud the role of all human rights defenders in Botswana that worked tirelessly on this case to put an end to the harassment of LGBTI community in Botswana and ensure that LEGABIBO can finally get to work.
