Zimbabwe: Mugabe Threatens to Behead Homosexuals

President Robert Mugabe has yet again revived his acerbic attacks on Zimbabwe's gay community whom he called worse than pigs and threatened to behead them.

Mugabe is a self-proclaimed homophobe who in the past has labelled gay people "worse than pigs and dogs", and threatened them with severe punishment.

Mugabe's latest threats were made in Mutare where he was addressing a rally at the Aerodrome Ground on Tuesday, according to a NewsDay report.

In the report, Mugabe is quoted telling his followers that: "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, (US President Barrack) Obama says if you want aid, you should accept the homosexuality practice. Aah, we will never do that."

Homosexuals are generally regarded as outlaws and frowned upon in Zimbabwe and across Africa where the practice goes against conservative belief systems.

Regardless of any personal feelings about homosexuality, a country's leader should never call for violence against any group or individual.

These unprovoked utterances by a Head of State whose rallies have so far been immediately followed by a surge in harassment of political opponents, are likely to spread fear and despondency within the gay community.

In July, Mugabe attacked gay people seven times at his rallies, prompting complaints from the Gays and Lesbians Association of

He may not like them, but I doubt he described himself as afraid of them.

The detergent in your soap may be hydrophobic, but I doubt that means it's afraid of water; it simply means that it won't react with/connect to water molecules.  Same sense of the term viz. Mugabe and homophobia.

Well, this is unacceptable to the 'civilized' world.  Has Mugabe crossed the line?  Will he finally be deposed?

Doesn't he know that in today's media-infused world you can only go after straight white guys (preferably capitalist and Christian) in that way?

I had much the same thought when I first read about this. It's ok that he stole the property of white farmers, turned it over to his followers, watched farm production plunge, and has turned a once prosperous country into a basket case. But it's not acceptable that he's now attacking the homos and thus the West may finally act against this low life thug.

Look at you all trying to oppress a black man.
