Debate - Public - Is Homosexuality un-African?

BBC World Debate: Is Homosexuality un-African? from Ben Cashdan on Vimeo.

Justice Motlhabani reported on this:
Watch my friend Eusebius Mckaiser winner of Masters debate Finals at Botswana Worlds 2011 take on former president of Botswana Festus Mogae at on a BBC debate about homosexuality. Really enjoyed the debate, hope it serves to encourage acceptance of gay people in our society.

The page where the video was found says:

Gay people on the African continent face persecution, imprisonment and even death. “Correctve rapes” continue to be inflicted on lesbians in South Africa’s black townships. In Uganda, lawmakers are promoting a new Anti-Homosexuality Bill. In this debate we bring together gay rights activists and conservative religious groups to ask “Is Homosexuality un-African?”
This World Debate was produced by Ben Cashdan of the Broad Daylight Films Foundation in Johannesburg for BBC World News. With support from the Open Society Iniative for Southern Africa and the Heinrich Boell Stiftung.
