Long time reader from Rwanda. I noticed you recently linked to an article which stated that Rwanda was contemplating introducing a law to criminalize homosexuality as in neighbouring Uganda. It turns out this is not true. Rwanda's Justice Minister recently announced that the rumours were completely false but, even more suprisingly, he said that sex was a private affair that the government would never interfere with. Amazing huh?

And relieving. And what a thrill those first words still provide: "Long time reader from Rwanda." Ah, the Internets.
