Robert Mugabe Shouts “We are Not Gays!” During UN Speech



Robert Mugabe at the UN BellaNaija

President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, is currently a popular topic in global headlines due to what is being regarded as his infamous speech on Monday at the United Nations General Assembly on Monday.

As many know, Mugabe, 91, has always expressed his anti-gay rights sentiments. And so he seized yet another opportunity to make his views heard, but this time, he chose the UN platform.

According to IB Times UK, he suddenly shouted “we are not gays” while giving a speech about the western world’s views about human rights.

Here excerpts from the speech:

Respecting and upholding human rights is the obligation of all states and is enshrined in the United Nations charter. Nowhere does the charter abrogate the right to some to sit in judgment over others, in carrying out this universal obligation.

In that regard, we reject the politicization of this important issue and the application of double standards to victimize those who dare think and act independently of the self-anointed prefects of our time.

We equally reject attempts to prescribe new rights that are contrary to our values, norms, traditions, and beliefs.

We are not gays!

    While his people have 90% unemployment, no electricity no jobs, no money and life continues to spiral down in my beloved country the most important thing to hi is shouting about gays in New york instead of looking for investors and banning electric geysers in a country with no electricity and no water anyway. Cry my beloved country!!!

      @Lisa I am almost certain that was not the only thing he spoke about. The media is only playing to the one that will generate the most attention. And yes, human right demands that the West respect Africa’s refusal to join the ‘gay party.’ We definitely have more pressing issues.

      What part of it is true? That there are no gay people in Zimbabwe (or Africa), or that gay rights are upheld and respected in accordance with the UN charter, or that gay people should have no right to exist in Zimbabwe (or Africa)?

    Why is a decision between two consenting adults give him sleepless nights? What has he done in his country to protect minors from pedophiles and women from being sexually harassed and abused? Huh, this is so sad, he needs to lay off politics and allow the young people in his country to rule. There is nothing admiral about an outburst from a senile dictator!!!!

    wow, Mugs baby, lam liking you. Self-anointed prefect s of our time! How astute. Also, gays are asking us to change our value systems by force. why cant they just live by their system and we live by ours in a parallel but Interconnected world? Just live how you want and leave us alone. Also, system should allow them to live how they want. The only reason we are embroiled in gay marriage brouhaha is because the self-Appointed moralist of the past 100 years in USA decided that only people Intimately connected via marriage or blood were coverable by insurance and entitled to death benefits. oh, dogs and cats were allowed to Inherit but not Your beloved friends or partners, except a will explicitly stated such. The reason for the insurance companies position is that the years of data they have collected shows the least uncertainty in terms of predicting risk for people married. In Other words, they are better able to predict the premium you pay routinely if you are paying for yourself or child, or if paying for your Spouse. Now your mom or pop can cover you until you leave home, which until Obama care was 18. Assumption here was that you are now free from the Social and physical context that shapes risk. But guess what, if your mom becomes elderly and comes to live with you at age 60, she cannot be covered. She is not your spouse or child. So gay people suffered a lot because they could not be covered by their Partner’s insurance. The Issue even extends into the advance directive arena. The only way out presented by our Capitalist and greedy system was marriage. Marry or perish! So they went for marriage. if they had been charged a slightly higher premium that assured coverage, I have the feeling they would not dabble into the world of marriage. I hope historians document this as one of the greatest unforeseen consequences of capitalism on humanity as we used to Know it.

    I like that : Self appointed prefects. America hasn’t finished solving all their problems,gun violence especially, they will be going about trying to force people to accept Gay people. Remove the log in your eye before you remove the speck in another person’s eyes. At least I am relatively safe in my country. In America,you do not know if there is some sick psycho in the cinema just waiting to spray people with bullets for no just cause.

      @ Ese erm what country are you in that is relatively safe???? It better not be Nigeria, if you are saying Nigeria is relatively safe compared to the U.S., then you are not being honest!!! Is it not the same Country we are talking about kidnappings?, or that one high, armed robber will just decide he wants to waste innocent lives?? or even so called police men shoot innocent lives for refusing to give money they have done nothing to earn, or is it the murders committed every day by people who don’t want to see your face???Yes, the U.S needs to address its gun laws but it is those laws that are enforced that makes it safer than Nigeria, I tell people the difference between many western countries and Nigeria is that sooner or later, the law catches up with you, all the crazy people that have gone on shooting sprees in the US have either died by self inflicted wounds or been made to pay the consequences for their acts. Can we say the same for “your relatively” safe country?? in fact, majority of them are your leaders today.
      We may not embrace everything the western world has to say and we don’t have tobut please bring a strong argument to the table when you want to, something clear and concise, gun violence and homosexuality not related and really just made your point weak.

      Courage? Courage? Shouting that we are not gay from the top of his lungs is courage to you? Pathetic. Courage is standing up for the people in your country on ALL issues- not just gay issues. Where are his proclamations about ending corruption, eradicating poverty, stepping down from power so others can have a chance to do things differently? THAT is courage. Any idiot can shout against gays, but only a courageous person can challenge the systems that destroy livelihoods!
      Courage. I have truly seen it all on BN today.

      You Obviously do not know any thing about Mugabe. He stood and fought apartheid and played a major role in the liberation of South Africa. Zimbabwe was “doing well” economically until he saw that because most of the farm lands were held by whites who gained control of them during apartheid era and so the black Zimbabweans remained poor. He tried to redistribute the land and faced strong opposition form the west and economic sanctions were the consequence so the economy crumbled. Whether the move was a good idea or not, I will let time tell. Do not just take the narrative of the media. They also told us that Fidel Castro was evil, yet he helped Mandela and SA during apartheid when the west looked the other way. Both Mandela and Pope Francis spoke highly of him.

    In a country with 90% unemployment he went to UN to talk about homosexuality and you people are hailing him? This is why Africa will remain the dark continent. He is there leading his country forever, people suffering intensely in his country and he couldn’t come and look for investors for his country? Convince pharmaceutical companies to send down HIV drugs for free? This is the nonsense he came to talk about while people are dying in his country and you people are hailing him? I really have no hope for africa.

      That is why these thieves remain in power forever. Our people are so excitable and easy to please. SMH.

      Even the most despotic and useless African leader will garner popular support and have all his transgressions forgiven the moment he declares hatred for gay people. Nonsense.

      How will he able to do that when the ‘prefects of this age’ decides who gets aids or nt without clauses of those who are recieving the aids to succumbs to their tunes. U think a country like Usa , france, Germsny or whstever will grants aid to african countries without in pursuanxe of their hideous national interest?

      I’m in support of you Mr Mugabe! All those claiming and famzing the gay movements, America is a hyprocrite nation, why dont they legalised polygamy and the likes? Buh they want others to follow and copy their devilish and unnatural relationships. You westerners should leave africans alone, help if yiu want to help but we wont tag along in your dirty gay mire.

    We are not gays!”

    I love it!!. Reminds me of Haile Selassie’s speech delivered at the same UN meet that was immortalized by Bob Marley in the song titled “War”. They preach tolerance but are forcing their homosexual agenda on us. Be all you want to be but don’t call me names because I don’t support your lifestyle.

    Exactly the point. In a world where people are starving and suffering from hunger. The likes of Obama and his British homosexual cronies are running around pouring trillions of dollars and pounds into evangelizing and spreading the gay gospel for evil through the media. Why won’t Mugabe call them to order to concentrate on more important issues. Ask Obama how many African countries he has been to, or sent a delegate to preach homosexuality. Don’t come here with double standards. Mugabe is right, the African culture is superior and favor life and natural renewal, unlike the homosexual agenda of population control and death. Two homosexuals will never give birth to a new human to start a new generation. They want to reduce world population, Obama puppet of Satan.

    Oh for God’s sake!! He went to UN to talk about homosexuality when 90% of his people are unemployed and suffering. He is a fool. He couldn’t search for investors?? Women and children are being assaulted and humiliated everyday and the idiot is shouting about gays?? I wonder what the heterosexuals have done to help the country??
