Five men were arrested this week in Domboshava, Zimbabwe, on suspicion of committing "acts of sexual immorality," according to the website Bulawayo News.
The arrests came after a store owner contacted police when he saw the men spending money in an unusual manner, which was not specified in the report.
According to Amnesty International, an organization that tracks human rights issues throughout the world, "Police continued to arbitrarily arrest and detain human rights defenders and journalists undertaking legitimate human rights work." In addition, those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender face extreme persecution.
In May police raided the office of Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe. Two employees, Ignatius Mhambi and Ellen Chademana, were arrested. Both were charged with possessing prohibited materials but were later acquitted.
