Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has called British Prime
Minister David Cameron "satanic" for backing gay rights.
The comments come after Cameron threatened Zimbabwe and other
anti-gay countries with re-directed financial aid as an incentive
to boost LGBT equality.
Instead, Mugabe believes he should receive condition-free money
from Great Britain while actively persecuting gays and
"It becomes worse and satanic when you get a prime minister like
Cameron saying countries that want British aid should accept
homosexuality," Mugabe said in a speech on Wednesday.
"To come with that diabolic suggestion to our people is a stupid
offer," he said, according to the state-run Herald newspaper.
Only recently, Mugabe threatened to punish gay Zimbabweans.
"Do not get tempted into that (homosexuality). You are young
people. If you go that direction, we will punish you
"It is condemned by nature. It is condemned by insects and that is
why I have said they are worse than pigs and dogs," he said,
according to The Herald.
