Zimbabwe President Mugabe Just Learned There are Homosexuals in His Country, Backs Uganda's Anti-Gay Law

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe spoke out in support of Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Law on Monday and condemned Western nations for threatening to cut aid, AFP reports.

MugabeSaid Mugabe:

"They (the West) want to tell us... that it's a violation of human rights, that is what they are doing to Museveni right now...The human right you have as a man is to marry another woman not to get another man to marry, we refuse that. It's a terrible world we are in, a terrible world where people want to do things that they feel will enhance their own interests."

Mugabe also said that he has become aware of a group of gays in Zimbabwe and plans to investigate:

"I understand we have a group of homosexuals in this country. I didn't know until I was told the day before yesterday. So we want to check on who is in that group."

AFP notes: "The Gays and Lesbians Association of Zimbabwe (GALZ) has long operated in the country despite Mugabe's ranting against homosexuality. Police have on several occasions raided the GALZ offices and prosecutors had laid charges against the association accusing it of operating an unregistered organisation."

Mugabe spoke out against gays last July no less than seven times, threatening to chop off their heads:

 “If you take men and lock them in a house for five years and tell them to come up with two children and they fail to do that, then we will chop off their heads. This thing (homosexuality) seeks to destroy our lineage by saying John and John should wed, Maria and Maria should wed. Imagine this son born out of an African father...Obama says if you want aid, you should accept the homosexuality practice. Aah, we will never do that.”

Mugabe has previously claimed that gay men pose a threat to women's rights, condemned the "gay filth" of European culture, as well as threatened the U.K.'s prime minister over their support of same-sex couples.

  1. The you won't get AID and your country will die a very slow death. We'll stand back and watch as diseases, famine, industries and your own citizens destroy you. It's your choice. You can be stupid and bigoted or your can accept life for what it is and open your world to equality. Until then, you die.

  2. The butcher of Zimbabwe is lecturing the West about morality? Don't make me laugh.

  3. Well, we can see the way African bigot nations are going; we can act by withdrawing all contact; or we can sit on our hands.

    We pandered to Putin in Sochi with our fearless athletes denouncing injustice and discrimination; we now see where that got us. Putin, the fascist, will take what he wants because there is no one to stop him.

    There is no one to stop Mugabe in Zimbabwe, Museveni in Uganda and Goodluck Johnson in Nigeria.
    And there was no one to stop Hitler in the Sudetenland and Checkeslovakia.
    They all have a common denominator; bullying ignorant bigots with a visceral hatred of 'the gay'.

  4. 'It's a terrible world where people want to do things that they feel will enhance their own interests."'

    WHAT: this from an old lunatic who has clung to corrupt power for decades, enriching himself as he degrades and impoverishes his own people>=?!

  5. "CUT OFF THEIR HEADS" I wonder what the 'Christians' in this or any country feel about this.... and is this similar to what Hitler did to the Jews and Gays by gassing, etc. in WWII?

  7. Oh yeah,
    Thanks Scott Lively, for Uganda and Russia.
    Aiding and abetting aggressive fascists seems to be your forte.

    You are not in jail for treason.....yet.
    But you will be.

  8. Mugabe is a murderous criminal and a thief. Screw him.

  9. "They (the West) want to tell us... that it's a violation of human rights".

    "Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe ... condemned Western nations for threatening to cut aid."

    When "the west" has sent aid for the main objective of improving human rights you better believe they would have a reason for complaint when you begin to violate the human rights "the west" thought they were improving all this time.

    Don't accept the aid if you have a problem with "the west" and how they would like to improve your country.

  12. I thank my luck stars that I was born in the Northeast of the United States of America and not Russia, most of Africa etc. More needs to be done to discredit these dictator monsters.

  13. It's not surprising that he didn't know there are gays in his country. Who would hit on someone who looks like he does? He should try out for the Evil Emperor II in the next Star Wars film (if they have an evil emperor, that is).

  14. I can't even with them. The whole lot of them.

    "The human right you have as a man is to marry another woman not to get another man to marry, we refuse that. It's a terrible world we are in, a terrible world where people want to do things that they feel will enhance their own interests."

    Seriously, who are you to tell me what to feel? Who are you to tell me what rights I have? Ugh. That last sentence too...I just, I can't.

    "If you take men and lock them in a house for five years and tell them to come up with two children and they fail to do that, then we will chop off their heads."

    Throw her into a river and if she floats, she's a witch! Burn her!

    Way to uphold those stereotypes, Africa. A nation of barbarians 200 years behind everyone else.

  15. Also, girl, you need a makeover. Shave that cleft. Get a brow pencil and fill out those eyebrows. A little press powder goes a long way too. Somebody needs a faaaaaacelift.
