A Zambian court on Friday convicted two men for homosexuality. A report on the eNCA site notes that it marks the latest such ruling in the conservative African nation which has resisted international pressure to lift its tough anti-gay laws. The Kapiri Mposhi court found Stephen Chataba guilty of ‘performing unnatural acts’. They will be sentenced by a higher court. They were convicted after a hotel employee said she saw them having sex through a window.
