Malawi: Gay couple jailed

After two men in Malawi were given prison time for being in a homosexual relationship, a Presbyterian leader said his government shouldn't let international donors bully it into accepting homosexuality.

"We are happy they have been sentenced to 14 years in jail," said Levi Nyondo, general secretary of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian, Livingstonia Synod.

"The donors can stay with their money, we have our morals to protect."

But Undule Mwakasungula of Malawi's Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation, said his organization will help the two appeal their case.

"Sending them to jail will not stop them from being gay," he said.
