As the Western Countries applaud the US President Barack Obama’s administration for pushing for the legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States. Robert Mugabe, the President of Zimbabwe, took a rather bizarre swipe at the Obama administration. In a very sarcastic statement, President Mugabe said he will travel to Washington, DC and like a classical suitor go down on one knee and ask for Obama’s hand in marriage.
“I’ve just concluded – since President Obama endorsed the same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance – thus if it becomes necessary, I shall travel to Washington, DC, get down on my knee and ask his hand.” – Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe.
It is no secret that the Obama administration has been very critical of the authoritarian and dictatorship rule Mugabe has in Zimbabwe over the years. It is also a fact that homosexuality is largely considered unnatural and goes against every cultural practices and beliefs held by the native African people.
