Denounces gays in UN address

28 Sep, 2015

Mugabe rejects extending rights to gay people in Zimbabwe during a speech at the UN General Assembly.

We reject attempts to prescribe new rights that are contrary to our values, norms, traditions and beliefs. We are not gays.

He also criticized US and EU sanctions:

We have peace in Zimbabwe just now. We don’t want war. We don’t want interference. We don’t want to hear of regime change at all.
