Botswana to deport gay-bashing US pastor Steven Anderson

Homophobic US Pastor Steven Anderson is in the process of being deported from Botswana, after state officials declared him prohibited person in the country.

Anderson made headlines last week after calling Archbishop Desmond Tutu perverted for his stance on equality and gay rights.

Botswana's government has yet to give specific reasons for deporting Anderson.
