PRESIDENT Mugabe yesterday slammed some European countries for refusing to accept the will of Zimbabweans who overwhelmingly voted for zanu-pf in last year’s harmonised elections, and for seeking to impose their will on Zimbabweans.

Addressing thousands of people who gathered for the 34th Independence anniversary celebrations at the National Sports Stadium in Harare yesterday, President Mugabe rapped Europe for losing principles and values by promoting anathemas like homosexual unions saying any western diplomats who try to promote gay rights in Zimbabwe would be given the boot.

He added that he would not hesitate to expel any diplomats promoting gay rights in Zimbabwe.

“I want to thank you for standing with Government in resisting pressures from Europe. The Europeans will never ever accept a zanu-pf Government in this country. You went to vote on the 31st of July last year, all of you people voting very peacefully. Hapana mhere mhere yakamboitika asi the Europeans say the elections were rigged.

“Ko akarigwa papi? Hachisi chokwadi ichocho, nhema dzoga dzoga, lies. The Europe of yesterday is gone we have a Europe of today which has no principles at all . . . what is positive has become negative what is natural is made unnatural and what is unnatural they want to say is natural,” President Mugabe said.

He added: “So the truth is denied and the lies are accepted. You can never listen to such people anymore they even refuse to say that if a man has sex with another man is wrong, it’s sodomy.

“Sodom and Gomorrah yemuBhaibheri havaitenderi. You pass a law that rejects homosexual marriages ‘we will punish you’ sezvaitwa Uganda nesu and also they want to believe that if a man gets another man and they have a homosexual relationship they have human rights to do so but that act is inhuman — it’s not human.

“Its’ inhuman and human rights cannot derive from acts which are inhuman that does not exist in jurisprudence.”

President Mugabe warned NGOs that are promoting homosexuality at educational institutions.

“Kune organisations dzinouya dzinonzi ndedzema homosexuals, take care, warn them,” he said. “Some years ago, I was warned that there was some secret organisation of that nature which was addressing young men varimumauniversity nemuzvikoro to join them as homosexuals.

“This is nonsense from Europe, keep their homosexual nonsense there and do not cross over with it.

“We did not fight for this Zimbabwe so it can be a homosexual territory.

“We will never have that here and if there are any diplomats who will talk of any homosexuality, just tell me. We will kick them out of the country . . . We won’t even listen.

Kungoti chete ava vari homosexual, risati radoka tinenge tavakanda kunze kwenyika ino.”

The European Union and the United States have been threatening to cut financial support to countries that do not embrace homosexuality.
