  1. Sh*t Black girls say.

    Always fascinated by this blog's interest in the internal politics of African nations.

  2. Especially when African nations ape non-African ones re homophobia. As usual the biggest loudest phobe is a closet queen.

  3. "and Canaan Banana (Zimbabwe’s first ceremonial president"

    Is it me or does Canaan Banana sound like someone's porn name?

  5. Mugabe sort of looks like a gorilla. Pat Robertson sort of looks like a chimp. I wonder if it's a coincidence that human scum generally looks more monkey or ape-like than the rest of us.

  6. The fixation on Homosexuality is astounding. Have they no poverty or disease to think of? Have they no schools or hospitals to build? Why these people spend so much time and effort thinking of homosexuality sheds light on what they dwell on. Really it's all so telling.

  7. Interesting to note that he didn't deny the charge, only that the MP was charged with undermining his authority.

    I say "Guilty!".

  10. I can't remember the last time I thought about hetero-sex or talked about it with my friends or local politicians. OMG...they sure have a fascination with what we do with our junk. Did you know that "homosexuals eat poo-poo"...according to another African political elite. Never done that myself. Don't know anyone who does...but they sure like to think about that too. It's fun watching Africa succumb to the evangelicals.

  11. I think closet cases are worse than homophobic heterosexual people.

  12. Mrs. Lillian Kirenyi just sent me an email offering half the $65 million she has to get out of the country before Jan. 1 if I will help her do it. I hope this arrest doesn't goof up the deal.

  13. Mugabee is upset because he wasn't practicing...he stopped practiving years ago no doubt, he's got it down and is good at it

  14. Please say it isn't so. Mugabe, one of the most vile creatures on the planet, just can't be gay.

  15. I'd like to extend a personal thank you to backwards countries like this for demonstrating to the US's Republican base the difference between not having free speech and being called out for arguments rooted in hatred, bigotry, and lies.

  16. This woman has the biggest balls in the country, possibly the biggest in all of Sub-Sharan Africa!

  17. imho, "calling" should have been used instead of calling; or another word altogether...just sayin'

  18. Well, that makes a lot more sense. #GayMugabe

  19. I agree with PrincelY54. Accusing Mugabe of being gay is huge. He might be the worse homophobe on the planet. From my experience, the worse people in the world usually have extreme self-hate issues.

    That woman accusing him of being gay is brave. They put her in jail? Yep, he might indeed be one of us. Sick and disgusting.

  20. Society has to understand that laws are different around the world.

  21. No, sunglasses, you obvious spammer, the world needs to understand that there are gay men and women everywhere and it's about time we're treated like humans regardless of our sexuality.

    F*ck the world's various laws if they can't treat gay people equally, no matter who we are or who we love.

  22. Still don't understand the need to claim such douches and monsters as one of our own, while it does more harm to us than to them.
