On Thursday, a report by the Institute of Race Relations revealed that some countries were still oppressive towards marginalised groups.

The institute based its findings on interviews with LGBT activists.

Researcher Gerbrandt van Heerden said: “One of the countries that stood out that still has a lot of oppression was Malawi as well as Zambia. The president of Zambia actually did say that we would not agree to equal rights for gay people, even if it’s at the cost of international aid.”
