I don't think it's correct to say that Male to male relationship's are not legal in the country. There's no law making them illegal, so I don't know where that came from. This country merely has no provision made for LGBT people. There are however only laws that protect the people, and they count for ALL people in Namibia. Being LGBT in Namibia is not legal, or illegal. There's just no enforcement in it at the moment.
