  1. Of course Archbishop Tutu is evil Mr Mugabe, that is why they gave him a Nobel Peace Prize (please note the sarcasm)

    Desmond Tutu is 10 million more times the man Mugabe will ever be.

    1. Mugabe is not a man.
      He is the lowest form of existance, worse than bacteria.

      1. That There Other David 29 Jul 2013, 1:50pm

        Indeed. Interesting that Mugabe mentions animals. His thoughts seem less advanced than theirs are.

        I think you might mean viruses. many bacteria are good for us and for life in general.

        1. At least viruses aren’t homophobic.

    The same President that also starves and beats his people, that murders and tortures, that discriminates against white farmers leading to even worse starvation….. a man who screams racism… who ort to know what it means to be persecuted….

    …and all while the world watches

    The biggest bloody hypocrite going.

  3. Oh will you just contract some terminal disease and die!!! Mark my words, the world, nor your people, will miss you you sad, sad little man!

  4. Never say never never never. Eh, Mr Paisley?

  5. I have observed sea slugs with greater intelligence than this stupid clown.

  6. Never, Never, Never will I support further financial aid for this vile dictator.

  7. Like Murdoch the evil ones seem to be indestructible.

  8. “During creation, God made Adam and saw that he was lonely, and he created Eve out of Adam’s rib and not another man.”

    A dangerous, sadistic, brain-washed saddo who has no place in the modern world.

  9. Mugabe has managed to be worse to his own people than the former colonial regime. He is also a racist, he hates white people (even those who had nothing to do with colonialism and provided altruistic aid to his people), he hates the Ndebele people in the southern half of the country. He resents Mandela, Desmond Tutu… the list is endless. So that he says he wants to eliminate gays should hardly be a surprise.

    The only good thing is that every day that passes he is closer to his own death, which given that he is now 88 years old is hopefully not too far off.

  10. Isn’t Mugabe dead yet?

  11. You are going to die very soon, you old fool. Homosexuality will be accepted in Zimbabwe and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it, worthless piece of scum.

    He realizes that Tutu has way more credibility than him, that’s why he’s throwing a tantrum. Moral pressure from the west he can call colonialism (and to be honest, there is an element of that, see how many people on P.N. are quick to call him racist things) but moral pressure from within Africa he can’t shrug off so easily.

    1. Great post. We should always recognise the continual role of neo-colonialism in Sub-Saharan Africa; western governments, NGOs and multinationals continue to control large swathes of the continent’s resources, the profits of which then largely end up in western banks. Western media and public opinion furthermore continues to propagate racist stereotypes of Africans, focusing on civil wars, famine, and corruption, ignoring the many great achievements of Africa.

      Unfortunately, many African nationalists aside from Mugabe have come to associate homosexuality with this western neo-colonialism. They treat it as an attempt to impose western values on African culture. There has to be a concerted effort to reject this trend within the African nationalist movement. African nationalists have to recognise that homosexuality is native to Africa.

  13. I’m bored of this… Why is pink news bothering to report this. He is irrelevant and hopefully dead soon and then the world can move on and Zimbabwe can be a free and tolerant nation.

    1. He may see irrelevant, but his people are not, be they gay or straight, those people suffer at his hands and whilst that happens he isn’t irrelevant.

  14. “… We see donkeys all the time on top of each other, why can’t you humans do the same?”

    But Mr Mugabe…humans do do the same…humans are always on top of each other…gay or straight…or did I misinterpret the manual?

  15. I really really really hope he does believe in his bible. As he nears death he must be sh*tting himself knowing he’s going to hell. Evil bastard

  16. I’d be worried if Mugabe did support it.
    It would go against his goal to be an evil fascist dictator. So it would confuse a lot of people around the world, if he started to actually care about people.

  17. “… We see donkeys all the time on top of each other”

    Well, that explains it – Mr Mugato caught his parents having sex.

    1. Good one!
      hahaha

  18. I sometimes think it isn’t really worth taking anything that odious little toad Mugabe says even half-seriously, but – among a thicket of irrational, ignorant comments – I do love this one: We will not compromise our tradition.

    What “tradition” is that, Mugabe? Catholicism? A “tradition” introduced by the hated White Man less than a century and a half ago, and which includes all of 7% of Zimbabwe’s population.

    If there is a template for a clueless national leader, Mugabe must be it.

  19. ““We see donkeys all the time on top of each other, why can’t you humans do the same?””

    Someone needs to tell this man about the 2000 species of animal that can be homosexual including donkeys….

  20. He is a good catholic tho :) i always bring him up when talking to my catholic friends :)

  21. Mugabe represents the most primitive medeival side of Africa. So he thinks that we are worse than animals. So why are animals treated so cruelly in Africa – sacrificed and slaughtered in the most barbaric way. Politicians who think differently are beaten up and persecuted. At least Tutu has intelligence, compassion and inner strength. Why does Mugabe feel so threatened by homosexuals? He might think he comes across as manly but infact he appears weak and mindless especially when he starts relating the story of Adam and Eve as though it were fact. A total moron!

  22. GingerlyColors 29 Jul 2013, 3:46pm

    Never, never, never will we support foreign aid for Zimbabwe as long as Robert Mugabe is alive.

    1. Jock S. Trap 30 Jul 2013, 9:13am

      Yes but most religious people become selective with facts on things they do not wish to see, hear or know.

  23. “When you are a president and cannot interpret the economy, you should resign and give it to those who can. We will not compromise our tradition and tolerate bankruptcy.”

  24. This piece of human garbage turned the bread basket of Africa into a basket case that now relies heavily on international doners to feed the people.

    The sooner he is dead and buried the better off the people of Zimbabwe will be.

  25. Hacker group Anonymous, are you listening to this BS? It’s time to crash President Mugabe’s countrywide servers.

  26. Robert Mugabe is a vile and murderous dictator. He’s also 88 and will be dead soon and can take his dreadful homophobic views to the grave with him.

    Someone else will take his place and while that person’s unlikely to champion gay rights, he probably won’t be as homophobic as Mugabe.

    That’s the nature of progress – often frustratingly slow but generally dependable.

  27. Yeah, that’s what everyone else said, now look at us…

    Give it a decade or two, then we’ll see how popular your opinions are…

    Love Conquers Hate
    Always has, always will

    Mr. Pink

  28. I think what he meant was – “We will never, ever, ever treat other people with dignity and respect”. What a poor deluded old cretin. The rest of humanity will keep becoming more civilised whilst this coffin dodger finally expires and his like will be dragged kicking and screaming into modern society if need be.
