Zim MP held after saying Mugabe is gay

2011-12-29 22:02

Harare - A Zimbabwean parliamentarian was held in custody for seven days after saying President Robert Mugabe had gay sex with another politician, state media reported on Thursday.

The state charged Lynette Karenyi, of the Movement for Democratic Change, with saying "Robert Mugabe, president of Zanu-PF, had homosexual relations" with another politician, according to The Herald newspaper.

"Karenyi is alleged to have insulted President Mugabe, while addressing an MDC rally held on December 9 at Nhedziwa football grounds in Chimanimani," the paper reported.

Mugabe who is known for saying that gays and lesbians are "worse than pigs and dogs" last month labelled British Prime Minister David Cameron "satanic" for saying that countries that want aid from London must accept gays rights.

Both Karenyi and her party declined to comment on the matter to AFP but the newspaper said she was "denying the allegations being levelled against her".

The politician was released on Thursday after paying $200 bail.

The MDC and Mugabe's Zanu-PF are in an uneasy government of national unity following disputed polls in 2008.

The MDC has accused the police of arresting their officials and supporters on trumped up charges to settle political scores.

      hey mugabe you not gay, but robert is?

      Squeegee - 2011-12-30 07:02

      She should have told the truth. She should have said that (Sponge)Bob Squarehead Mugabe is mad, a tyrant, murdering, sick sadist, racist swine; who had homosexual sex with another politician.

    What an insult to gay people, comparing them to this pig.

      LOL, why in the hell would Britain or the USA want to control Zimbabwe?

      Tzadik ~ Lay off the weed you're smoking. It's too strong because you're talking cr@p again boy.

      Jason Morgan - 2011-12-30 01:20

      You're talking nonsense why would Britain and America want to control a country which relies to south Africa to put food on its shelves store use your brain before you comment here not your troubled feelings ok.

      jack.oosthuysen - 2011-12-30 01:24

      Tzadik. you are not perhaps from N Korea. Same scenario there.

      ubhejane - 2011-12-30 02:12

      T-M L M I'm now going to reply to you based on the information I read about you on Facebook, because I had to read your comment a few times to try and understand what you were saying. You say you graduated from high school in 2004, that would then make us the same age. Then you say you have a B.Comm in Hospitality Management. Now unless the University of Venda has gone completely bonkers I can't imagine why they would bring a commerce degree into hotel management and then have you graduated within one year. B.Comm degree in one year? You also state that you worked for ABSA and at Woolworths in their customer care division. Reading this post I don't think you were anywhere near any of these places. Go hide all that stuff you stated on there because you are making a mockery of all of us. You can't come onto this forum with an educational track record as diabolical as you have stated on Facebook, then post anything as diabolical as this on here and expect other readers to not identify you as one of the uneducated followers of Malema.

      louisdiemasjien - 2011-12-30 03:32

      What do you call that? Zimbabwe english? Your grammar and punctuation is as bad as Mugabe is dumb. Perhaps you only hate the USA and UK because the can actually speak and write correct english.

      louisdiemasjien - 2011-12-30 03:38

      O yes. I've visited your facebook page. Why are there so many spelling mistakes? Thanks for showing us the type of support old Bob has... ha ha ha

      Alfred Neumann - 2011-12-30 03:49

      So Britain and America are 'satanic' for asking for equal rights for all citizens (kinda like you were not so long ago, remember) before dishing out more handouts to ungrateful, bigoted little snots like you while your syphilitic lunatic 'father' is a hero for murdering thousands, stealing land from thousands of families to give to a handful of zanupf thugs and their revolting girlfriends, selling aid given to the people of Zim by the 'evil' west and just being an allround douchebag of biblical proportions? If they wanted to control Zim they could have kicked crazy old Bob's useless behind out of there in an afternoon. I reckon the west should cut all aid and leave the likes of you and all your hypocritical, homophobic and criminally idiotic chums to pick flies off poo for lunch.

      Silvana - 2011-12-30 06:45

      @Tzadik. You're queerer than you president or should we refer to him as Queen Bob. LOL

      To BMcB they want to drain the great nation of Zimbabwe of all it's rocket scientists and brain surgeons, it's gold reserves, it's great leaders, they want to get the brain of Mugabe in a bottle so it can stand next to Einstein's brain

      ffaarg - 2011-12-30 21:36

      An obvious troll. I can't believe people think these are real views.

      Perfume5 - 2011-12-30 22:44

      @Tzadik..lmao!!!! Why must the MP be arrested in Britain, I am certain the man has been arrested in Zim, what has the USA and Britain got to do with this. The mind boggles.

      Perfume5 - 2011-12-30 22:46

      @ubhejane..what Bcom is T-M L M speaking of, he just commented on another article stating he teaches Maths....strong stuff his smoking very strong stuff..puff puff.

    Lest we forget Mugabe and Mbeki holding hands and lovingly looking into one another's eyes. Mugabe is as gay as the sun that rises in the East every day. And the lengths that he will go to, to drive all gays out of Zimbabwe. Very soon, Zim will have only one gay left in that God forsaken country. Some view him as the illegitimate President but in actual fact, he is the Queen of Zimbabwe.

  • ahpretorius - 2011-12-30 00:36

    Oh please, why would anyone in their right mind want to have ANY kind of sexual relations with this horrible pig? Many dictators died in 2011, there are still 2 days left, I am hoping the same will happen to this vile animal! He has destroyed thousands of lives, and a country that was once fairly prosperous. The world will rejoice the day he is gone!

      Lambert - 2011-12-30 10:53

      hopefully you can die before him,even if he can die no one will change the policies so go to hell

      John - 2011-12-30 16:24

      @ Enrico.... You show yourself up to be on the same mental level as Bob...

      Irene - 2011-12-30 21:09

    A embarrassing communist country in the peacefully southern African region Zimbabwe aka north Korea

      Peter - 2011-12-30 02:33

      What do u gain from insulting your own country u fool....what made u even change your face from back to white...??...dont behave like a pig yourself { not an insult to gay people i respect}.

      Jason Morgan - 2011-12-30 03:02

      @peter I can see that you're those people who worships the last standing dictator in Africa aka Robert mugabe and let me set the record straight with you I was born in Canada but my parents are original from cape town in south Africa so that makes me to have a dual citizenship I'm not from mugabe land and I have lived in south Africa for 20yrs the reason I know so much about you Zimbabweans is becaz I work for the British home office in the housing association department so I have dealt with so many stuborn shona people like you. Who will be secretly supporting mugabe while their are asylum seekers in Britain. So if mugabe is a king what are your country men and women including you doing in foreign countries shame on you for defending a horrible regime of Robert mugabe.you should be deported wherever you're back to your god mugabe.

      Peter - 2011-12-30 15:51

      @Jason Morgan...canadian , lived capetown...bla bla..u think i am stupid. You can fool the whole lot here but not me and the fact that they support u it seems u are all fools. Sorry... u are Zimbabwean , U work for the home office?...maybe the home office in your county in Tsholotsho.....as far as i know the UK home office does not have the housing association department because i worked in the immigration as an advisor before.I do not dispute that most asylum seekers are false but its not an issue we should be discussing here as its not the subject but i certainly know that you are one of them and most of ndebeles are not successful were ever they go they are always legging behind and they still blame it on Mugabe. Please move on man..u are stuck in the past. And to be honest , i have more better things to do than to waste my time like u...good luck with your madness.

      Jason Morgan - 2011-12-30 19:26

      @peter you have got limited vocabulary I'm not gonna waste my energy on you. You have really inherited Robert mugabe's genes and you're a dangerous Mozambiquean cobra snake to your fellow country men and women I hope you get caught wherever you're before you bite and kill innocent civilians with your Vernon poison.

      Peter - 2011-12-30 20:34

      @Jason Morgan...'@peter you have got limited vocabulary I'm not gonna waste my energy on you.'...thats pure Zim mentality.Its not about vocabulary, its about facts and i would rather tell them in simple English. I have lived and worked with several nationalities since i was 17 including traveling 26 EU countries , north America , japan and Australia and i know very well who is who without telling me your nationality i can easily figure it out.I hope u can explain to us y all your contacts in two of your Facebook accounts are all Zimbabweans and non is Canadian white...if Canadians were like you the nation will be a disgrace. This time i will let u off with your insult and i hope you don't repeat that again.Thank you.

      Irene - 2011-12-30 21:12

      Peter, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

      Jason Morgan - 2011-12-30 21:41

      @peter just keep dreaming mugabe's boy you're giving yourself medals of being travelled all over the world using which passport Zimbabwe's. You must be joking that's why I said you're so daft are you aware that with your Zimbabwe passport you need a visa to go even if to Afghanistan let alone European countries you just mention. And yes I have a dual citizenship and I can tell that my Canadian passport is bothering you. About the Facebook friends you're talking about I have got just 3 friends from my entire Facebook profile becaz I don't even use Facebook except for putting comments here. So you're lost again as usual

      Peter - 2011-12-31 00:04

      @Jason Morgan - did u just call me Mugabe's boy?. What does that mean?. Jason i am not like you who hide your nationality and blog your anger towards Mugabe on this portal. I dont do that , if i am not happy with Mugabe i find a way to go and confront him directly i am not a coward and he know it very well. Of course i don't use a Zim passport , this is something you should have figured out long time ago just as i figured out your shoddy Canadian claim. I have a quad citizenship but i will never stop claiming my Zimbabwean-ness that's where i came from.

      Jason Morgan - 2011-12-31 00:43

      @peter the reason Zimbabwe went down the drain its becaz of people like you arguing with you its like trying to talk to a rock yes Iam very very proud to be Canadian/south African and whether you like it or not you can't do anything about it you can cry or scream it won't help you either.

      Peter - 2011-12-31 01:00

      @Jason Morgan..have u ever read any of my comments thats support Mugabe?..Please show me. I dont care about him because he is nothing and i dont struggle like you to deal with him if its in my interests to do that i will sacrifice my life and time. We are dealing with a manipulative media which is so biased that by all means they should win and persue an agenda hence deleting my comments and thumbing us down even if we are saying the truth. It is a war , but you are fighting yourself ...not me and i have nothing to lose. I will be watching till the end when you finally get a taste of own medicine.

      Jason Morgan - 2011-12-31 01:31

      @peter people sometimes do argue about this thing's so just let it go was not fighting you actually if I hurt you on some of my comments sorry. I thought you were defending the brutality and the horrible regime of mugabe It was what made me to come hard on you. I was not against you as a person I was against your comments. So let's bury our differences I wish you happy new year and all the best for the future. I'm off to bed now my sexy wife is waiting for me.

  • leko.dada1 - 2011-12-30 02:51

    Real threat to democracy is weak political opposition parties...they do all dirty tricks,insulting and labelling our leaders as corrupt to the core! TAKE NOTE,'LOSERS' how to be an advanced opposition: i,dnt undermine mere fact that governing party enjoy majority votes to be where they are...share/believe in same 'political ideology' with governing parties,showing patriotism that you truly commited to serve citizens than being a puppet controlled by remote,but clearly differ in implementation on your election manifesto. ii,work closer with governing party where they fail[showing you are governing material]putting citizens first and dont claim 'brownie points',people on the ground will notice genuine hard work and will reward by vote. iii,refuse whining and crying foul or making noise rather work smart under-groung[anyway its where you belong]and expose corruption when you have facts ready to be tested in court.voters wont be confused by your intentions. iv,dont classify voters by race,class or groups as well as URBAN/RURAL...otherwise you will fail to unite citizens and there-fore remain a chosey bloke discriminator meaning [by far still not a governing material] v,last but not least dont pose yourselves as 'THE PERFECT/HIGHLY MORAL/HIGHLY QUALIFIED' deserving votes or to govern...other-wise you distancing yourselves from voters capable of putting you in power. MOSTLY BE INFLUENCED BY VOTERS NOT ELSE-WHERE IN THE WORLD. Its free of charge,take it or remain good as dead !

      ubhejane - 2011-12-30 03:48

      This is wonderful! Tell me then when are the people of Zimbabwe going to start creating jobs for all the 3 Million Zimbabwean people that live here in South Africa because we can't be creating jobs for Zimbabweans while all of Zanu-PF sit and talk ideologies all day long? International airports are impounding their planes because they can't pay their accounts. Their President must fly on other airlines because he can't face the International embarrassment of his plane being impounded. For 30 years now they have been talking and talking and talking about all these great ideologies. At what point are they going to get on a tractor and start planting food for their people? People can't eat crazy African ideologies. They need maize. They owe South Africa Billions for electricity. Their red hot ideologies are seemingly not switching any lights on for them. Has a little light gone up for you now? I'm sure not. It is just so much more comfortable to spew rubbish like this for a living while we provide for their citizens. Please explain to me something. I'm very stupid. If Zimbabwe has been free for 30 years, who and why are they having this never ending struggle with???? Don't tell me Imperialists because then I know you are brain dead. An Imperialist is a white man on a horse that came here 300 years ago and has since died. Go check the graveyard. I'm not kidding you. Your harsh reality is you are fighting an imaginary enemy and that is why the whole world is laughing.

      One thing leads to the other. It is for instance said that the HIV virus originally comes from the great Apes somewhere in Africa. Then it is also claimed that this virus was initially brought in by the gay society. Looking at this man's features, could there be a link? On second thoughts I also think the gays should not be belittled by linking them to our man in Zim.

    This is extremely chidish we were unaware that Mr Mugabe is a gay but the decision that has been taken is unconstitutional also Mugabe was not right when he was saying in public gays and lesbians are worse than pigs and dogs, in zimbweans the only problem is that current tension-filled political situation which is affecting their citizen and the entire africa more and more in our economy.

      Lambert - 2011-12-30 10:20

      well Mugabe was expressing his opinion ,because he was forced to legalize homosexuality ,and Africans believe that homosexuality is cultural unheard and socially unacceptable.hence if an African feels to be Gay he must go to Britain not in Africa.Mugabe is not the only one who hates gays to be honest with you every African regard homosexuality as evil doings.
