Kenyan court upholds a ban on same-sex relations+++ British Prime Minister Theresa May announces her resignation+++ Zimbabwe’s main opposition, the Movement for Democratic Change to hold its first elective congress
Kenya has postponed a much anticipated ruling on homosexuality, to the great disappointment of human rights groups. They continue to hope for a verdict that decriminalizes same-sex relationships.
It's back to the civil war for Prime Minister Theresa May, after dancing for the UK on the global stage. Meanwhile, Chequers is as "dead as a dodo" as Brexit talks drag on.
Angola has done away with criminalizing homosexuality, removing a notorious "vices against nature" provision in its penal code. Other African nations still punish people for same-sex relationships.
The meeting between US President Trump and Kenyan President Kenyatta served the interests of both leaders at least in the short term, even if it was largely symbolic. But the broader problems remain.
