This is to confirm that Pastor Steven Anderson, a citizen of the United States of America, has been declared a Prohibited Immigrant and as such is being deported from Botswana, said Botswana Government in a statement on Tuesday. He was arrested after doing a radio interview in the capital, Gaborone. Anderson runs the Faithful Word Baptist Church, which says that homosexuality is an abomination punishable by the death penalty. After his visa for South Africa was rejected last week, the preacher posted on his Facebook page: "Thank God we still have a wide open door in Botswana." Homosexual acts are illegal in Botswana, as in many African countries.
