Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is at it again.

Mugabe who has in the past has barbarically threatened behead gays and lesbians is keeping his hate speech alive and mentally un-well this time by referring to gays and lesbians as “inhuman.”

According to the Washington Blade:

“The West says we must accept there is change in the world, that gays have human rights,” he said during an event at a hotel in Harare, the country’s capital, that commemorated International Women’s Day as the Herald, a Zimbabwean newspaper, reported. “Gays have no human rights. They have human rights – human rights for doing an inhuman thing.”

While the Unuted States does have some “sanctions” in place against Zimbawe  it continues to be a leading provider of humanitarian assistance to the people of Zimbabwe. The United States provided over $300 million in 2009 and over $200 million in 2010 for humanitarian, food, health, and democracy and governance assistance to Zimbabwe.  In 2011, the United States continued to provide this level of assistance while also raising its commitment to fight HIV and AIDS in Zimbabwe by $10 million to a total of $57.5 million.

Zimbabwe President Mugabe Under Investigation For Crimes Against Humanity: “Gays Are Worse Than Dogs”

On February 14th’s a Crimes Against Humanity case was lauched in High Court in South Africa against high level Zimbabwean including President Robert Mugabe who in the past decades have used a combination of intimidation and patronage to prevent police officers, lawyers and judges to carry out independent investigations and trials of perpetrators of political violence and have caused survivors of political violence, torture and rape have been left without access to justice.

The case in question concerns Mugabe’s role in the torture committed after a police raid on the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) headquarters in 2008.

But that didn’t stop the corrupt and evil Mugabe from using the  occasion of his 88th birthday party over the weekend as a venue to continue his deadly battle against gays and lesbians and speak out against “western” societies who embrace them.

Said Mugabe:

“We reject that outright and say to hell with you. You are free as a man to marry a woman, and that is what we follow.

“In their newspapers, that’s one of my sins — that I called [gays] ‘worse than pigs and dogs,’ because pigs know there are males and females, I won’t even call him a dog, because my own dog will complain.

You must go to the head of the imperialist and knock out his brain

The International Criminal Court Act obliges signatories to arrest and prosecute perpetrators of crimes against humanity, giving South Africa no choice but to arrest the perpetrators.

Mugabe’s case will be heard between 26 March and 30 March 2012.

ZIMBABWE: Two Gay Activists Arrested For "Undermining" Dictator Mugabe.

In Zimbawe, two gay activist have been arrested and charged with “undermining” the regime of the country’s  dictator, Robert Mugabe. The charge arises from an anti-Mugabe letter from former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, which was reportedly displayed in the pair’s office.

Ellen Chademana and Ingatius Muhambi of the Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe pressure group were arrested on May 21 after a police search of their offices in the capital.  Police allege that Chademana and Muhambi displayed a plaque from former San Francisco Mayor Willie Lewis Brown in their office in which the African-American denounces President Robert Mugabe’s homophobia against gays and lesbians. 

In 1995, Mugabe told a crowd including diplomats that homosexuals were “lower than pigs or dogs.” He has been the target of gay-rights activists on trips to Europe ever since. 

Chademana and Muhambi also face charges of possession of “indecent material,
