Mugabe Denounces Western “Gay Filth”

Mugabe Denounces Western “Gay Filth”


Embattled Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe lashed out at the "gay filth" in Western countries that maintain an asset freeze and travel ban on him.

According to Agence France-Presse, Mugabe spoke to thousands Thursday at the burial of the deputy director general of Zimbabwe's Central Intelligence Organisation, Menard Muzariri, who died this week.

"About the unnatural things happening there, where they turn man-to-man and woman-to-woman," he said. "We say, well, it's their country. If they want to call their country British Gaydom, it's up to them. That's not our culture. We condemn that filth.

"We get alarmed when these countries have the audacity to schedule us as an item to discuss in their parliament," he continued.

Homosexuality is illegal in Zimbabwe, where President Mugabe has shared power in a tenuous arrangement with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai since the 2008 election. The country is drafting a new constitution in which Mugabe has said he does not want to see LGBT rights mentioned.
