(They wouldn’t have him.)
I’m not saying Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is gay—I don’t know and wouldn’t care if he were—but his wardrobe is a little suspect:
A Zimbabwean MP has been freed after spending Christmas in jail for allegedly saying President Robert Mugabe had had gay sex, local media say.
Lynette Karenyi, from the former opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), is said to have made the comments at a rally on 9 December.
Insulting the president is a criminal offence in Zimbabwe, whose leader is known for his anti-homosexual views.
The MP has denied making the comments.
She was arrested on 19 December after allegedly saying Mr Mugabe had had sex with two male politicians.
Zimbabwe’s president infamously said gays were “worse than pigs or dogs” and condemned British Prime Minister David Cameron for suggesting that aid would be cut off from countries which did not recognise gay rights.
That’s what I would call praising with faint damnation. Most humans are worse than dogs, and there are more than a few pigs whose company I would prefer as well.
