Zimbabwean Politician Who Accused Robert Mugabe Of Homosexuality Out On Bail

MugabeLillian Kirenyi, the Zimbabwean politician imprisoned after allegedly accusing Zimbabwe's election-stealing president, Robert Mugabe, of "practicing" homosexuality, is out of jail

Two weeks ago, when addressing supporters of the Movement for Democratic Change party, Ms. Kirenyi allegedly complained that President Mugabe’s party was

... attacking MDC president [Morgan] Tsvangirai, alleging he is pro-homosexuals, yet Robert Mugabe has practiced homosexuality with Jonathan Moyo and Canaan Banana.

For this, Robert Mugabe did what any sexually confident, totally-secure-in-his-not-gayness president of a serious nation would do under similar circumstances, and threw Ms. Kirenyi into prison. She's out now on $200 bail, and denies all wrongdoing.

There are few things in the world Mr. Mugabe hates more than homosexuals. Last month, he called British PM David Cameron "satanic" for saying that countries who desire aid from Britain ought to grant LGBT people their human rights. He's also said that LGBTs are "worse than pigs and dogs."

"Do not get tempted into [homosexuality]," Mugabe told a group of young people in a Zimbabwean mining town in November. "You are young people. We will punish you severely."

  1. Calling Zimbabwe a serious nation is a huge compliment, at least under Mugabe. My dog is more serious.

  2. Civilization seems to have passed that nation without even a cheery wave, if a tyrant like Mugabe is in charge. Remove 'em from the US money teat. We have no business propping up his regime, especially since any aid is unlikely to actually reach the people who need it.

  4. Mugabe as you might expect is a big supporter of Ron Paul.

  5. While were at it cut off the billions in foreign aid we give to Israel. It's time to rebuild America.

  6. And once again, I implore ALL readers to contact their elected representatives and demand that any and all funding now being siphoned off to Zimbabwe (and any other country who discriminates against gay people) be stopped or face removal from office. We're terribly sorry for not sending them money but until they stop their war mongering against gay people and remove those politicians/dictators who cause the loss of funds, they will go without. Demand it, dammit.

  7. Beware of unwanted repercussions. Mugabe could easily be replaced by a crony who would start a war with North Sudan or some other country. Africa isn't exactly a rock of stability at the moment.

    He had 1,000% inflation a couple years ago. If his people won't take him out for that carnage, good luck thinking that dropping our pittance of support will do much.

  8. Canaan Banana? Is that a real name or a porn-star name?

  9. He "practiced" homosexuality? That's pathetic. It really doesn't take a lot of practice. I got it right the first time.

  11. WHY DO PEOPLE LABEL OTHERS AS HOMOSEXUAL BECAUSE THEY DISAPPROVE OF HOMOSEXUALITY? WHAT A LAME CHARGE! Lillian Kirenyi CLAIMS President Robert Mugabe HAD SEX WITH Jonathan Moyo AND Canaan Banana. [Was she there?]. IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO KNOW WHAT Mr. Moyo AND Mr. Banana [WHAT A NAME!] WOULD SAY.
