VP Chiwenga fumes over ‘Munhu Munhu’ gay scholarship offer

Labels initiative as devilish and unAfrican

By Staff Reporter

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has reacted angrily to a call for scholarship applications exclusively availed to underprivileged Zimbabwean gay and lesbian students wishing to further their education abroad.

The call, dubbed Munhu Munhu, was posted on the Gays and Lesbians Association’s social media pages.

See advert below.

In a strongly worded statement Thursday, Chiwenga branded the call as “unlawful, unchristian, anti-Zimbabwean and unAfrican”.

Read full statement by VP Chiwenga.

The Government of Zimbabwe strongly and firmly rejects and denounces as unlawful, unchristian, anti-Zimbabwean and unAfrican insidious attempts by foreign interests to entice, lure and recruit, Zimbabwe’s less privileged but able students into Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender activities and malpractices through offers of educational scholarships.

Zimbabwe has legislated against all such deviances, making any offers predicated on the same aberrations both unlawful and criminal, and a grave and gross affront on our national values and ethos as a Christian Nation.

To that end, government sees such scholarship offers as a direct challenge on its authority, and thus will not hesitate to take appropriate measures to enforce national laws, and to protect and defend national values.

Our schools and institutions of higher learning will not entertain applicants, let alone enrol persons associated with such alien, anti-life, un-African and unchristian values which are being promoted and cultivated by, as well as practised in decadent societies with whom we share no moral or cultural affinities.

Zimbabwe is a sovereign, African State with definite laws and values which typify it, cutting it apart from other mores.

Young Zimbabweans who qualify for enrolment into tertiary institutions here and elsewhere, should approach Government Departments tasked to give grants and scholarship support to deserving cases. They should never be tempted to trade or sell their souls for such abominable and devilish offers.
