Parliament in Angola has abolished a law widely interpreted to be a ban on homos*xuality.

The government has also prohibited discrimination against people on the basis of s*xual orientation; anyone refusing to employ or provide services to individuals based on their s*xual orientation may face up to two years in prison.

Angola is the latest former Portuguese colony to repeal laws outlawing same-s*x conduct, following Sao Tome and Cape Verde.

There have been no known prosecutions under the now expunged law.

Many other African countries enforce strict legislation against homos*xuality.
