No rubber cover for Zim

11 November 2011, 13:17

It’s a snow ball’s chance in hell for condoms to be allowed into Zimbabwe’s jails, despite the risks of Aids infection through homosexuality, according to a senior official from Zimbabwe’s prison services.

Seeing change in that dictator governed armpit of a country, Ladies and Gentlemen without hyperbole you have greater odds seeing Julius Malema singing kumbaya with Afriforum, riding Unicorns to a candy coated Luthuli House.

Pondering to myself, I said why should I care they criminals after all, perhaps this move is Zimbabwe’s euphemism for the death penalty. But what perils lie for rear ends that are wrongfully convicted, confined in a holding cell cautiously awaiting the inevitable.

Agrey Machingauta the armpit’s deputy commissioner was quoted on state radio saying “let me say a big yes, we know this activity (sodomy) takes place in prison” and that such anus...I mean heinous acts of sodomy are an infringement under Zimbabwean prison laws.

 "On the issue of condoms, we cannot issue them out until parliament passes legislation to legalise homosexuality," he said. This encryption can be deciphered in simple terms as; Zimbabweans are used to being screwed-quite frankly since the 1980s. It’s bad enough having their backsides in tatters and having your masculinity affirmatively taken from you, but the inclusion of your health is literally a Death Sentence.

But for those truly stained by guilt...don’t drop the soap or your CD4 count..

Be careful what you wish for

In a country that was formed out of protest action, mobilised by great demonstrations and inspired by immense speeches, why are we so seemingly desperate to give it all up again? Read more...

Is Zuma really to blame?

President Jacob Zuma’s efforts to avoid his day in court and avoid a state capture commission of enquiry, suggests that the accusations made are not without foundation. Is the responsibility for the situation solely that of Jacob Zuma? Read more...

Throughout the decades, and even in South Africa, this reference to the commanding heights became almost synonymous with the socialist and populist project. I think I have even heard Malema on occasion referring to the need to get control of the “heights”. Read more...
