    Malawi to overturn homosexual ban, Joyce Banda says

    Joyce Banda is doing her best to get donor funding restored to Malawi

    President Joyce Banda has said she wants Malawi to overturn its ban on homosexual acts - the first African country to do so since 1994.

    Two Malawian men were sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2010 after saying they were getting married.

    Several Western leaders have recently said they would cut aid to countries which did not recognise gay rights.

    Mrs Banda took power last month after her predecessor, Bingu wa Mutharika, died of a heart attack. She has since reversed several of his policies, including devaluing the currency, in a bid to get donor funding restored.

    Many donors cut aid under Mr Mutharika, accusing him of economic mismanagement and political repression.
    In her first state of the nation address to parliament, Mrs Banda said: "Some laws which were duly passed by the august house... will be repealed as a matter of urgency... these include the provisions regarding indecent practices and unnatural acts."

    tatizo la viongozi waliozoea kuishi maisha yao kwa kusaidiwa ndo hili. Nchi zina resources za aina zote lakini wao bado wanafikiria kwamba bila misaada hatuwezi kufanikiwa. Huu ni upumbavu wa western education tunayopewa,haitufundishi kuwa self independent. Watu tuna mafuta,dhahabu,shaba,ardhi yenye rutuba,maji kila kona,vivutio vya utalii lakini kila siku tupo nje ya nchi kuomba misaada. Kuzaliwa mweusi ni kama laana fulani hivi!

    I respected and acknowledged Bakili Muluzi on how he had handled the case and his firm stand against foreign intrude on the matter; as much as the subjects were later on freed. I wonder with this pace if we as Africans will have any true ethnic values to call our own in the future...

    Umaskini wa kujitakia wa mataifa ya Afrika yenye raslimali kede kede ndiyo unaosababishia tukubaliane na haya masharti ya kipuuzi.

    Joyce Banda amemkatalia hata Omar al Bashir asikanyage Malawi kwenye mkutano wa AU Julai. Banda amemwomba radhi Bashir kwa kuchukua uamuzi huo kwa sababu kama Bashir akikanyaga Malawi wazungu watakata misaada.

    Sudan's Omar al-Bashir not welcome for Malawi's Banda
    4 May 2012

    Malawi's new President Joyce Banda has said she does not want Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir, accused of war crimes, to attend a summit in July.

    She says she fears the "economic implications" if Mr Bashir attends the African Union meeting in Malawi.

    Her predecessor, Bingu wa Mutharika, who died last month, last year defied calls to apprehend Mr Bashir.

    "Let the AU decide on his position. He [Bashir] should forgive us this time as we are struggling to fix the economy," the Reuters news agency quotes her as saying.

    Maskini madame Banda.... Anaonesha weakness zake kwa uwazi mno. That is way too over transparent. Hio lifting up the gay ban ni tosha kabisa kuplay with as a bargaining chip in the economy sector in relation with the donors. Going to the extrems of banning Mr. Bashir's attendence on such a major International meeting is an official mark that she a kaput to whatever is demanded of her by her own stamp of desperation.... Sad.

    Atakapokuja kujing'amua atajilaumu (and it will surely be too late!)

    Kujing'amua ni kazi sana Askari... They will give her what she wants... and wipe out any mashaka remaining kuhusiana na wao. Anaonekana kama vile she is kind of absolute in decision making, too early to say but still evident. Lets wait and see movie inakoekea...

    AshaDii nadhani tatizo la hao wanyasa vile vile ni kupenda uzungu kupindukia (kwa mfano kucheza ngoma ya lipenenge na kaptula, soksi, shati jeupe na tai shingoni kwenye vumbi). Hii imekuwepo tangu enzi za Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda ambaye alipaliliwa na waingereza hadi kujiona yeye ni mmoja wao. Sijawahi kuona mwamko wa kisiasa toka kwa wamalawi ambao nimekutana nao, zaidi ya wachache kama marehemu Kanyama Chiume. I might be wrong but that is the way I see it!

    ogopa sana kumwamini activits ambao wameingia kwenye siasa kupitia mgongo wa utetezi wa haki za binadamu. This is typical! Anataka kuendelea kutetea hata ujinga. Bush mbona ameua sana watu? Au kwa sababu alikuwa anawafanyia hivo waarabu? Somtime huwa nawakubali waarabu kwa kugoma kuendeshwa na hawa nguruwe japokuwa utajiri wanautoa kwetu. Kuzaliwa na ngozi nyeusi ni laana fulani!

    Nchi kama Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia na Botswana ni baadhi ya nchi chache Africa ambazo wananchi wake waliwekewa mazingira ya kuonesha kua wao things of interest in the nation ni yale tu ambayo yanahusiana na their immediate welfate... Wahakikishe wanafanya kazi, they provide for their family na kufutatilia mengine kama entertainment za football ama mengine. Politics ilikua inaongelewa na wazee tu! Na ni kitu ambacho kinahusu viongozi wa nchi.... This mentallity has cost us...

    Hivo Askari Kanzu you are not wrong... thou inaenda ina change tokana na hali za maisha kua mbaya zaidi. At present Tanzania tupo vizuri zaidi kimwamko wa Siasa kuliko hata Malawi.... ambao kama sisi wa Tz ama Wa Zambia wameanza mda sio mrefu kujua kua Siasa ni part ya kila mmoja na everyone has the right to know, be updated and speak their belief. Ukitaka uelewe hii tunaangalia majirani zetu Kenya na attitude yao towards politics.... then unapata picha.

    Mi namuunga mkono...
    How can you say that homosexuality is "unnatural act and indecent practices"?
    Hizo sheria zimekaa kinyume na haki za binadam na zinatakiwa kukanushwa.
    However, this should not be done "in a bid to get donors funds reatored",
    it should be done because it is part of the jus cogens.

    Nyalotsi mie naamini muarabu na Mzungu hawana tofauti... Wao ni kitu kimoja. Tofauti yao ni kua Mzungu ni mnafiki na Intelligent kuweza tumia huo unafiki wake kupata atakacho. Muarabu hana unafiki.... hio ndio imem Cost. Mzungu hapendi race nyingine zaidi ya mtu mweupe... racism haitakaa iishe no matter wasomi wengine wanasemaje! Pamoja na kusema kua Mzungu hapendi mtu mweusi, yeye ni mnafiki na kaweza weka conditions ambazo zinamjengea mtu mweusi kujua kua nae ni mtu sawa na yeye wawapo pamoja....

    Kwa warabu that is another case Nyalotsi.... Jamaa wana roho mbaya mno! Ni wabaguzi na bahati mbaya sana what they want wanataka iwe by force, hawana simile... hawana patience kama mzungu kuweza pata kitu in the long run kwa njia ya brain washing.... Nasema hili sincerely.... Siku mwarabu atakua na nguvu ya U.S hapa duniani... The earth will stand still.
