Namibia Supreme Court Rules Against Same-Sex Couple in Citizenship Case

03/21/2023 | Voice of America

Gay rights activists in Namibia are decrying a Supreme Court decision that will effectively deny citizenship to a child born through surrogacy to a same-sex couple in South Africa. The case has ignited public debate in Namibia on what constitutes a family. The ruling Monday by the Supreme Court of Namibia overturned a lower court decision that ordered the government to process a gay couple’s citizenship application for their child. The high court ruled last year that the minister of Home Affairs and Immigration must process the application within thirty days.
