Zimbabwe Leader Urges Leaders To ‘Banish People Who Support Homosexuality’.
WHAT CAN ONE SAY? AT LEAST ZIMBABWE REFUSES TO GROW AND CHANGE SO THEY ARE CONSISTENTLY IDIOTIC.
Local Government Minister Ignatius Chombo has urged traditional chiefs to banish “people who support homosexuality” from their communities and take away their land.
The ZANU PF MP was addressing villagers in Lupane who had come to witness the installation of Chief Mabhikwa Khumalo last Thursday.
“The chiefs are there to protect and promote our cultural values and those who support same sex marriages must be banished from the communities and be dispossessed of their land. What kind of madness is this that when we have beautiful women in our country some people want to marry other men,” he said.
The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) condemned the remarks saying: “Such utterances will give rise to an increase in incidents of harassment, persecution, as well as unlawful arbitrary evictions and seizure of property,” all of which violate national, regional and international human rights.
The lawyers said: “Chombo’s appetite for forced evictions, especially in the month of May, is reminiscent of the scorched earth programme of Operation Murambatsvina which had far-reaching consequences on a large portion of the Zimbabwean population.”
