Description

Activists have welcomed the sentencing of the man accused of killing lesbian Duduzile Zozo. Judge Tshifiwa Maumela handed Lekgoa Motleleng 30 years behind bars. But many human rights campaigner believe more has to be done as many countries continue to criminalize homosexuality or transgender identity and persecute the LGBT community, LGBT people in many countries may be vulnerable to state violence or hate crimes. Although South Africa was very first country in the world to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and has one of the most progressive constitutions that legalises same-sex marriages, reports of violence against gays and lesbians are becoming more frequent.
