Africa's First Openly Gay Minister & MTN's Shame

Zakhele Mbhele

The appointment of Zakhele Mbhele, Africa's first openly gay minister, in South Africa is certainly a momentous occasion.

However, we find his success tainted by the fact that South Africa continues to support an extremely homophobic Ambassador to Uganda, Jon Qwelane. Just Google his name to read about his legacy of hate. 

Not only is Qwelane the South African Ambassador to Uganda, he is also a trustee of the MTN Foundation.


Use the above to contact MTN Uganda to tell them that it is not okay to have Jon Qwelane promoting their charity.

How can South Africa promote equality at home whilst exporting gay hate abroad?
