Malawi’s Anti-Gay Law Back in Force Again

Malawi had previously confirmed that it would no longer arrest people for same-sex sexual acts

Malawi’s country’s government, which is heavily reliant on support from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and Western aid money, had previously confirmed that it would no longer arrest people for same-sex sexual acts - an agreement first laid out in 2012 after a prolonged campaign.

When two men were arrested on gay sex grounds in December, Malawi’s Justice Minister has stepped in to quash the case and impose a ‘moratorium’ on gay sex convictions.

However, Malawi24 reports that a senior judge in Mzuzu has instructed Malawi Police and the Director of Public Prosecutions to continue to enforce the law, while the government’s decision is “reviewed”.
