Zimbabwe leaders united against gay rights
Zimbabwe’s Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai voiced his support of the nation’s president who favors dismissing calls for gay rights.
President Robert Mugabe told a group at a belated International Women’s Day event that he recently learned of efforts to put gay rights into the new constitution currently being debated.
“That issue is not debatable, it’s not up for discussion,” he said, according the Zimbabwe Herald . “It is just madness, insanity. The ancestors will turn in their graves should we allow this to happen.”
Tsvangirai agreed with the president. “Women make up 52 percent of the population,” he said. “There are more women than men, so why should men be proposing to men?”
