Malawi man arrested for putting up gay rights posters


Peter Sawali, 21, was arrested last weekend when he was found putting the posters up on a main road in Blantyre.

The posters, said to be expensively printed, read "gay rights are human rights".

Mr Sawali will be charged with "conduct likely to cause breach of peace,", a police spokeswoman told AFP.

If convicted, he may be fined or jailed for up to three months.

Police are investigating how Mr Sawali obtained the posters. They believe he and other gay rights activists in Malawi may be sponsored by international organisations.
