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..
