The court in Botswana has postponed the ruling for a case seeking the overturning of the decriminalisation of gay sex.

The judges said they need more time to research and debate the matter and did not set the next ruling date.

A university student Letsweletse Motshidiemang had said the law should change as homosexuality was widely accepted in the society.

The state representative said there was no evidence that the society’s attitude had changed.

The court had in 2019 allowed the decriminalisation of gay sex which previously came with seven years imprisonment.

The government appealed against the ruling.
