    I dont know why this idiot Mugabe is still alive, will someone please kill the prick. He is a monster that should not be allowed to live and a coward because he hides behind his police bullies.

      He’s still alive because he is so vile that not even Satan wants him in Hell.

    I saw this man perform in London when he was invited to the Queen’s birthday celebration in the Savoy some years ago when he was on civil terms with the UK government.

    Despite the Queen rising to leave after the dinner, he rose and began a speech and then passing her gifts which was completely out of protocol.

    The might of the UK political spectrum past and present (at the time) were there and no one knew what to do.

    The Queen, gracious as always simply sat down again and politely listened, accepted his ‘gifts’ and then finally rose to leave when he’d finished speaking.

    It was a remarkable event. He demonstrated his capacity for bullying and his ability to manipulate some of the most powerful people in the world who were gathered in that room.

    The following month, he began taking back the land from white farmers and all the violence it entailed.

    I fear for the LGBT Activists in his country, I really do.

    Let’s face it, nothing will change until Mugabe dies and unfortunately he seems to show no sign of dying soon, for LGBT rights as well as all rights for Zimbabweans as he has systematically destroyed not only the peoples spirit but brought a prosperous country to that that defies description, where food shortages, unreliable infrastructure and amenities is common place.
    As usual the international community will do absolutely nothing to protect homosexuals from being treated “worse than dogs” and allow this dictators [who is nothing short of a criminal lunatic] regime to carry on its oppression, as it has for years.
    I feel perhaps to the world leaders, Zimbabwe is the Syria of Africa, and has nothing but human life at stake, to defend.

      Nobody lasts forever. On the day this evil man goes into the ground I for one will be opening the Champagne. Hopefully the bottles I have in the fridge won’t have time to wait much longer.

        and can you be sure his successor won’t be 10 times worse?

      2. I have a special dance routine prepared for that occasion.

  4. Pink News is often criticised for indulging in frivolous, lightweight stories, but its coverage of gay rights in places like Zimbabwe and Russia is to be applauded.

    It would be so easy to take a “We’re alright Jack” and look the other way, but PN’s ongoing exposure of the atrocious attitudes and inhumanity towards gays in close-minded countries – and our rallying calls for something to be done in the comments section – shows that we’re not all self-centred, ADHD types glued to Grindr and online porn.

    Well done guys, and keep it up!

  5. Sadly Mugabes death eill change nothing. There are many more who think the same who will take his place.

    The country and region is filled with generation upon generation of small minded biggoted people. The government and church have brainwased the youth who are the murderes of tomorrow. Until we stop this idoctrination there will be no progress.

  6. British Government is preparing to support the easing of sanctions against Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s allies and henchmen. Please sign the petition:
