Namibia Welcomes the Entry of Surrogated Twin Girls of gay Couples Into the Country

Quoting various tabloids, Namibia has issued travel documents for the twin daughters of a same-sex couple who have been fighting in court to take them home from their native South Africa.

The Namibian Ministry of Internal Affairs, has confirmed the issuing of the entry documents to the couple,however it has said the move did not grant the twins citizenship. Phillip Lühl, a Namibian citizen, and her Mexican husband Guillermo Delgado have been fighting for Namibian citizenship for their surrogated daughters, who were born in March to a South African volunteer woman.

The twins were denied entry to Namibia in April - and officials demanded that Mr Lühl prove via a DNA test that he was the father of the children.

However, the new minister appointed in April, Albert Kawama, having reviewed the previous decisions approved the issuance of the requested emergency certificates, thus allowing the twins entry , the AFP news agency reports.
