Africans are Not Gay -Mugabe Tells World Leaders


Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has rejected calls from the United Nations (UN ) to implement gay rights in his country.
Speaking on September 28, at the 70th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting, Mugabe said that upholding human rights is the obligation of all member states, but vehemently rejected the imposition of what he called “new rights” for gay marriage that have been advocated elsewhere in the world.
The 91-year-old Zimbabwean strongman said: “We equally reject attempts to prescribe new rights that are contrary to our norms, values, traditions and beliefs. We are not gays. Cooperation and respect for each other will advance the cause of human rights worldwide. Confrontation, vilification and double standards will not,” he told members of the General Assembly.

Mugabe has previously called homosexuals “worse than pigs and dogs.”
