Mugabe accused of gay sex with Banana
21 December 2011

A female member of Zimbabwean parliament has been arrested for alleging that its homophobic leader Robert Mugabe has engaged in homosexual relations.

Lilian Kirenyi of the Movement for Demographic Change has supposedly struck out at anti-gay Mugabe. She has claimed the Zimbabwean leader has had sexual encounters both with former president Canaan Banana and former Information Minister for African State Jonathan Moyo.

This is not the first time Zimbabwe’s old president has been associated with gay encounters. Banana was sentenced, before he died, on eleven counts of sodomy and luring men into sexual relations with him.

The Movement for Demographic Change is run by Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangiri, who shares power of Zimbabwe with Mugabe. Tsvangiri has been quoted as supporting gay rights, whilst Mugabe has referred to their existence in the past as ‘satanic’.
