Two Zimbabweans Arrested Over 'Lurid' Gay Pictures

ZimMapTwo Zimbabwean men have been arrested after a third party discovered pictures of them "embracing" in bed.

According to New Zimbabwe, one of the men, known only as Andrew, left his phone to charge with employees he knew at a local mobile phone store. One of those employees went through the phone's pictures and found images indicating Andrew and another man from the neighborhood were in a gay relationship. He then called the police, who have confirmed the arrest.

"I can confirm that we have arrested two men who are assisting officers with their investigations following the discovery of a set of images of a sexual nature. No charges have been brought at present," said a police spokesman. The men are still being held.

Not only is homosexuality illegal in Zimbabwe, it's considered an abomination by most of the population and President Robert Mugabe has made a habit of lambasting gay people, whom he likens to "filth."

Same-sex love is so disdained there, in fact, that people who heard about the pictures prior to the arrest gathered around Andrew and his alleged lover and wanted to "mete out instant justice," according to one witness.

As for Andrew, he claimed he and his friend had gotten drunk and "ended up behaving strangely," but that they're not in a relationship.

  1. "...people who heard about the pictures prior to the arrest gathered around Andrew and his alleged lover and wanted to "mete out instant justice," according to one witness."

  2. Yes, Jim...Jezus is with these people. The Prince of Peace has a lot of hate and can think of nothing better than to destroy gay men for their "sin"...even though he allowed himself to be killed for the sins of everybody else.

    Gotta love that Ol' Time Religion!

  7. It's easy to forget the depths of homophobia in countries like Zimbabwe, or Jamaca, or Iran, etc. It's like going back in time and living in "1984" combined.

  10. The truth is, Africans were taught homophobia by Christian missionaries during the Age of Imperialism. It's appalling to see societies that embraced a myriad of queer identities in pre-colonial days be reduced to this. That's why we must be active and fight to preserve our rights in the West or our freedoms will be taken away as well.

  11. Gina, the biblical writers cannot agree what the cause of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (spelling works) was, but I guess you are OK with Lot offering his virginal daughters up for rape. According to Ezekiel 16:49, "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy." Who is sticking what where has nothing to do with the equation.

    I don't do this often, but if you are going to quote scripture, then I suggest you read I Corinthians 14:34. It applies directly to you.

    Now go somewhere and sit down.

  12. Obviously Zimbabwe is just one more gay arrest away from completely turning around and becoming a real country with something to offer the world.

  13. IF ONE OF THE MALES WAS TOO POOR TO CHARGE HIS PHONE WITHOUT HELP, THIS STUPIDITY IS GREATER THAN THE STUPIDITY OF HAVING THE IMAGE ON THE PHONE IN A PLACE WHERE HOMOSEXUALITY IS ILLEGAL.

    THESE STORIES ABOUT HOMOSEXUAL DISCRIMINATION IN AFRICA, BEGS THE QUESTION: "Why don't African homosexuals practice discretion?" IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE KILLED OR BEATEN, YOU HAVE TWO OPTIONS - LEAVE AFRICA OR KEEP YOUR SEX LIFE PRIVATE. NO PUBLIC DISPLAYS.

  14. @ Verdon Coleman: The entire bible is full of mythological B.S., exaggerated and made up history and stories about a god named yahweh who is so vile he makes Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin and Hitler look like altar boys. Free yourself from belief in that primitive nonsense. Be Free at last!

  15. Zimbabwe is just another African country that is stuck in the 19th century. It must still be the fault of the European colonialists. Africans can't be responsible for this maddness. Lets hear from the P C leftists. The Africans can never be responsible for these evils. It must be the white mans fault.
