As the storm over the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Malawi refuses to die, renowned poet Hudson Chamasowa has spoken out in defence of gays.
In a late night Facebook post, Chamasowa who also works for Joyce Banda owned Ufulu radio station posted that Malawians should allow homosexuality as long as the persons involved are aged 18 and above.
Chamasowa as well tore apart the religious argument thrown around by most Malawians who are against homosexuality on the basis that it is sinful. The poet told Malawians that they should leave judgement in the hands of God.
Chamasowa becomes the first renowned poet to speak in support of gay rights. His stand however is contradictory to the stand taken by musician Lucius Banda who had to abandon a musical show after spotting two men kissing.
