Lesbians and gays in Namibia are outraged over a statement made by Home Affairs Minister Jerry Ekandjo urging police officers to "eliminate gays and lesbians from the face of Namibia." In the past, Minister Ekandjo compared homosexuality to murder. The Namibian Constitution, adopted in 1990, states specifically that "recognition of the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is indispensable for freedom, justice and peace". Minister Ekandjo claims that the constitution does not guarantee rights to homosexuals.
