HARARE: U.S. President Barack Obama has come under
heavy criticism from President Mugabe's Zanu-PF Party,
over his open support of legalizing same sex-marriage.
Widespread public condemnation demonstrates that President
Obama’s stance on gay rights is the worst possible sin against humanity. The
decision is an indication of how low America, which preaches democracy, has
sunk, so that today, it fails to respect moral values and even God’s word in
the Bible - which discourages homosexuality.
Chief Fortune Charumbira, President
of the Chief’s Council of Zimbabwe and a Mugabe loyalist, blasted Obama for
demonstrating loose morals, saying his stance should be condemned at any price.
“Obama’s stance supporting the legalization of same-sex
marriage should send a loud message to the world. This is why America’s claim
of upholding human rights should never be trusted. And this is also why Obama
should be condemned as unfit to rule,” Chief Chirumbira
said, adding, “if Americans vote for him, they will have been turned into
nothing better than animals.’’
Mwenezi West lawmaker KudakwasheBasikiti also had no kind
words for Obama, labeling him a messenger of the devil.
“The sentiments expressed by Obama are the worst form of
Satanism. Zimbabweans should be wary of such positions. This is shocking,
because even the Bible discourages homosexuality,” he said.
Basikiti added, “Obama’s stance supporting
gay rights speaks volumes about how his British counterpart, David Cameron, sought
to export gay rights to Zimbabwe through their puppet, Movement for Democratic
Change leader [Zimbabwe Prime Minister] Morgan Tsvangirai, and their foiled
attempt to use their agent, the U.N. Development Program, to smuggle
homosexuality into the draft constitution.”
The public also lashed out at President Obama, demonstrating
that his open support for gay rights should be condemned.
Obama's announcement sparked outrage at places of worship
across the United States, and will likely cost him the U.S. election in
Last year, President Robert Mugabe told British Prime
Minister Cameron, “to hell with you” over his calls to respect gay rights.
“Nature is nature. It has created male and female,” Mugabe
told thousands of supporters at his 88th birthday celebration in the eastern
border town of Mutare.
“You, David Cameron, are you suggesting that you don’t know
that, or is this some kind of insanity or part of European culture?

“In their newspapers, this is regarded as one of my sins.
That I called (gays) worse than pigs and dogs, because pigs know that there are
males and females. It is even in the Bible that you create through the system
“That’s how we were born, so we reject this notion outright
and say to hell with you. I won’t even call him a dog because my own dog would
complain and say, ‘what have I done?’”
At the Commonwealth Summit last year, Cameron said that
countries receiving British aid should respect human rights, including gay
The issue has re-emerged as Zimbabwe drafts a new
constitution, with debate on whether to follow neighboring South Africa’s model
and include gay rights in the charter. Mugabe urged young people to reject any
provision for gay rights in the new charter.
“We won’t accept it,” he said. “There are other countries that
have accepted putting this in their constitutions.… Please, young men and women, men don’t have
the freedom to marry men, and women to marry women. Men have the freedom to
marry women. That is God’s freedom. That’s what created you and me.”
Mugabe has ranted against homosexuality for decades.
During a recent visit to neighboring Zambia, U.N. Secretary
General Ban Ki-moon repeated his call for African
countries to respect gay rights.
