Malawi to Re-Open a Refugee Camp Despite Protest

According to a report on the Zitamar News website, Malawi will re-open a refugee camp despite a reported ‘strong protest’ from the Mozambican government.

Mozambique government, which wishes to see the refugees returned to Mozambique, tried to stop the re-opening of the camp, which would allow non-governmental organisations to provide 11 000 Mozambicans with ‘minimum humanitarian conditions’.

Human Rights Day Commemorated

President Jacob Zuma is expected to address the Human Rights Day celebrations on 21 March 2016 in Durban.

This year, the day has been declared as the National Day Against Racism and as a foundation to lay a long-term programme towards building a non-racial society.

Countries Fail to Empower Women – Ligiero

It’s been 107 years since the world began observing International Women’s Day, and yet no country has achieved full gender equality.

Vice president of Girls and Women Strategy at the United Nations Foundation, Daniela Ligiero, points out that, “It’s very sobering to realise that it’s 2016 and we don’t have that yet.”

Ligiero says that in Yemen, women are considered only half a witness in court cases and are forbidden to leave the house without their husbands’ permission. In Tanzania and Lesotho, women cannot inherit land.

Malawian Court Orders Arrest of Homosexuals

A Malawian court has ordered the country's director of prosecutions and the police to arrest those found engaging in homosexual activities.

The pastors argue that homosexuality is against the laws of the southern African country, in a court application after the minister of justice and constitutional affairs re-affirmed the moratorium on consensual homosexual offences.
