parliament lashes out against homosexual remark

A Zimbabwean parliament session during which South Africa's same-sex marriage law was discussed has caused an uproar, the International Herald Tribune reports.

The country's leaders were appalled when lawmaker Moses Mzila-Ndlouvu called top government leaders homosexuals, though he later apologized, saying that he did not name names. As in most other sub-Saharan countries in Africa, homosexuality is illegal in Zimbabwe.

Emmerson Mnangagwa, acting leader of the parliament's ruling party, told the media and lawmakers that the country does not support gay marriage.

"In Zimbabwe we are very clear that men marry women and women get married to men," he said, adding, "We have no duty to criticize laws passed by another parliament." (The Advocate)
