A comment on the Whatsapp group read, “I just want to know whether there is a planned demonstration against the recent Supreme Court ruling or are we just here discussing our unhappiness/disappointment against homosexuals. I think it would be a good gesture to unite and find a common goal in fighting this demon that is destroying our culture and traditions,” a comment in the group reads.

Namibians have used Whatsapp forums and Zoom as gathering spaces for anti-gay demonstrations. Various groups like Zambezi Anti-Gay Marriage’, ‘Kavango East Anti-Same-Sex/Gay Marriage Demonstration 2023’, ‘Say No To Homosexuals’, and ‘Ondangwa Anti-Gay Marriage Demonstration’ among others with over 3,000 members have been formed.

On a WhatApp Group, called ‘Anti-Gay Marriage’, Former parliamentarian Helmut Angula asked Parliamentarians to pronounce themselves on the issue of same-sex marriages.

“They must be given two weeks. Those who pronounce them should be advertised in electronic and print media. Those who declined to answer . . . such names should be widely circulated on the African continent. This helps African countries to accept them or not when they are posted to international and intergovernmental bodies of the continent.No stone should be left unturned in the crusade against sodomy,”

Other critics of the Supreme ruling are using phrases like “Say no to Sodom and Gomorrah” to pronounce their distaste and disapproval of the Supreme Court’s ruling.
