Zimbabwe president says gays, lesbians who do not conceive should be jailed

Slams Obama's stance on LGBT rights as 'forgetting' his African roots.
Sunday, July 7, 2013

HARARE, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe on Friday threatened to jail gays and lesbians for failing to conceive an offspring as he launched his party’s campaign for this month’s general election.

Mugabe, who heads the Zanu PF party, also slammed President Barack Obama for calling upon African nations to respect LGBT rights.

Robert Mugabe

“I heard Obama said ‘l wish Africa would legalize marriages between men and women’ and I said I thought that since your father was black you would understand and know the African tradition, now you talk about the western way of life?” he told thousands of supporters in Harare’s Highfield township.

Mugabe was reportedly laughing as he launched into anti-gay slurs, saying, “I should like to shut them-up in some room and see if they get pregnant; if they don’t then its jail because they have claimed they can have children. So, to that kind of rot, we say no, no, no, no!”

“Women are also engaged in this vile activity,” he said, in mocking lesbians. “We have some claiming to be men but what is it that makes you a man? Show us your manhood. You want to make other women your wives and you the husband? Well, that is madness; we refuse to accept that.”

Mugabe also criticized the Anglican Church, which he alleged blessed gay marriage, despite the fact that it remains firmly opposed to idea.

And in an apparent reference to the late first President of Zimbabwe, Canaan Banana who was convicted of sodomy, Mugabe claimed his government once jailed a “top leader” for forcing himself on other men.

Samba Chesterfield, chair of Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ), said that the president was politicizing an anti-gay campaign, potentially making an already bad situation worse, and called for him “to desist from making such hate filled statements that impact on the lives of LGBT people.”

“Mugabe needs to deal with issues such as unemployment, impunity, access to clean water and corruption in government, rather than such rhetoric that does not do much to win over a despondent electorate,” said Chesterfield.

Last month, Mugabe pledged to strengthen penalties against gays and lesbians, saying “they should rot in jail” if his Zanu PF party wins the upcoming elections.

He also promised that Zimbabwe’s constitution be amended to prohibit same-sex marriage.

Male homosexuality is illegal in Zimbabwe, and in 2006 the country’s government amended the law which now states that sodomy is any “act involving contact between two males that would be regarded by a reasonable person as an indecent act,” thereby criminalizing holding hands, hugging, or kissing.

Mugabe has been continually attacking LGBT people since 1995 saying they are “worse than dogs and pigs” “unnatural” and “degrading human dignity.”

  150. This from a man who murders his own people. Mugabe needs to stop his ignorance and hate. This man is seriously in need of a mental sanitarium.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:15pm
  151. I hope we’re not giving any aid to them.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:18pm
  152. He should never have been conceived….

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:21pm
  153. throw him in a facility

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:21pm
  154. He looks like a baboon!

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:24pm
  155. FUCK YOU Mr. Hitler er I mean Mr, Mugabe (You fuckin Nut Nut!)

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:25pm
  156. Another nut job on the loose.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:29pm
  157. Said the hypocrite biggot in the bright yellow shirt. I told you we should kill the breaders !

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:31pm
  158. must be obamas cousin

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:33pm
  159. Actually he’s 89 and should have retired years ago.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:36pm
  160. Does he realize two boys don’t make a baby? Hell, if we did, I would have conceived before my 20′s.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:41pm
  161. A bullet in the head (preferably self-administered) would save a lot of money in wasted treatment.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:43pm
  162. so sad…

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:43pm
  163. Just as we should with China, the U.S. should link financial and material assistance to progress on human rights.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:43pm
  164. Hate is not something I would fight with hate. I do not believe in murder of any human being.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:44pm
  165. Can’t they just stick us all on an island like the breeders used to talk about, back in the day? What a fabulous island it would be…

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:55pm
  166. In more ways than one.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 9:58pm
  167. Of course he does! Do you expect anything less?

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 10:20pm
  168. Just feel very lucky to not be living in these oppressive countries. People can complain all they want, and no place is perfect. But, in comparison, the US is like a utopia.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 10:22pm
  169. I say any person who wears that suit in public should be jailed!

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 10:25pm
  170. man, african politics fucking suck. i’m losing hope in these idiots.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 10:46pm
  171. Why the fuck do we care. It is Zimbabwe. Who the hell cares about Zimbabwe. The place could fall off the map and no one would care.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:12pm
  172. Go home Mugabe, you’re drunk as f*ck!

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:12pm
  173. he should be jailed for wearing that horrible outfit.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:17pm
  174. It’s Zimbabwe, what does he know…

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:19pm
  175. Asexuals and infertile people too? And besides, it’s not like this planet needs anymore people. What a grand class A-hole!

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:23pm
  176. What is with these people? This has got to be some lame attempt to distract people from the REAL issues his country faces.

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:24pm
  177. That’s the best thing about being gay is there’s no worry about conception. You don’t need to worry about taking a pill every day, or if the antibiotics you just took would cancel out your BC. There’s no accidents, no unintended pregnancies. You could just go to town and there will not be a child in the end

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:27pm
  178. So all heterosexuals unable to conceive should also be jailed?! Oh, that’s right, that would then include his sorry ass…

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:41pm
  179. Love him. Great guy. Jk Not!

    Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 11:50pm
  180. The Western World should make it clear that the re-election of Robert Mugabe means the immediate end of all financial support for Uganda.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 12:06am
  181. All the insanity has blended internationally…

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 12:16am
  182. Shame!

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 12:26am
  183. This dude kinda looks like Bill Cosby LOL

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 12:39am
  184. and he has the audacity to wear a yellow suit… bet he’s got yellow matching socks too..

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 1:21am
  185. Not a qualified President for this day and age…

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 1:25am
  186. he’s a complete megalomaniac and as such should be ousted from power & the UN should be at the fore front of getting this hideous little bigot out of office and charging him with war crimes against his own people,but they seem not to care & he just carries on doing as he pleases

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 2:09am
  187. He is the epitome of a racist, bigoted megalomaniac.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 2:12am
  188. What about those couples that are infertile? Or the elderly who can no longer reproduce. Shall we jail them as well?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 2:12am
  189. He’s just pissed because a gay man probably told him how shitty and tasteless that suit is.

    It’s so freaking yellow…

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 2:38am
  190. Complete wacko that guy should be in a mental ward on very strong drugs.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 2:57am
  191. has he conceived?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 3:18am
  192. as should any straight couple sir.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 3:32am
  193. so he wants them to make babies?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 4:05am
  194. He should have been incarcerated years ago.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 4:19am
  195. insane. And we imposed Xtianity there. Whacky land.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 5:00am
  196. That’s why their country is doing so wel- oh wait…nvm tyranny doesn’t produce favorable results as most parts of the world learned ages ago

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 5:05am
  197. Its Robert Mugabe, the dictator of Zimbabwe, he ruined that country so it comes as no surprise to me that he’d say things like this.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 5:18am
  198. We have politicians in the US saying this stuff every day, along with “Christian” broadcasters and publishers, the Phelps Family cult, even our elected officials. Most of them, if not all, are probably backing Mugabe.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 5:23am
  199. well its their country… they can do whatever they want… but what about straight couples that dont conceive? and if you are gay and have a kid, are you exempt?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 6:23am
  200. He should be jailed for that outfit.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 6:47am
  201. Mugabe/ZANU-PF did a lot for our struggle for liberation and independence. Sadly, while they have improved literacy in the country, this homophobia of his is so disturbing . . . and quite un-necessary. He’s not a nut, not any more or unless than Pat Robertson, et.al. :(

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 8:57am
  202. So.. what about straight people who, by reason of genetics or fertility cannot conceive? Does that mean they should be jailed too? That you can only have a functionally reproductive populace in the public eye?

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 8:59am
  203. Good, then gays and lesbians are entitled to a visa as refugees. But I understand why Africans and anyone else would have a problem with western culture and would mistake LGBT identity as a trojan horse. We saw how feminism is used to undermine national sovereignty in countries the US wishes to undermine.

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 9:02am
  204. He’s talking about gays and wearing THAT jacket? Me thinks he doth protest too much

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 9:28am
  205. Freddy Bastone, that’s the problem, some of us Africans don’t know our history or culture when it comes to what we call in the West “homosexuality”; it was in Africa BEFORE the Europeans and Arabs came into the continent.
    Mugabe either forgot or never knew. :(

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 10:01am
  206. USA!

    Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at 10:21am
  207. Hopefully he will be dead soon.
