“Powerful Nations should respect Africa, We are not Gays” — Robert Mugabe tells UN

Robert Mugabe President of Zimbabwe got a long ovation after his speech at the U.N general assembly 70th edition held in New York where he denounced gay rights, accused US & EU of interference in the domestic affairs of Zimbabwe.

Part of his speech reads:

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! Cooperation and respect for each other will advance the cause of human rights worldwide. Confrontation, vilification, and double-standards will not.” –Mugabe #UNGA15
