It is not currently legal for a man to be a fag in Zimbabwe. Laws were changed in 2006 from common law crimes to statutory ones.
Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s president, is highly outspoken on the issue. That does not keep it from slowly becoming accepted. He has been quoted as calling, well a spade a spade. He is quoted as saying fags are “worse than dogs and pigs.” He has threatened pro-fag clergy with prison sentences, and warns that any clergy performing same sex ceremonies will be arrested.
Through South African television – mostly in the form of soap operas – the Zimbabwean people are being exposed to the filth of fags and are beginning to accept it as normal.
Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) is growing as well. They state that their objective as “pushing for the tolerance and appreciation of sexual differences in society.” See www.galz.co.zw
Zimbabwe’s divorce rate is climbing steadily. One report states that there were 800 cases per year or about 67 divorces per month in March of 2004 as opposed to 45 per month in 2003.
Abortion in Zimbabwe is legal for specific reasons – to save a woman’s life, to preserve physical health, in cases of rape or incest, or fetal impairment. That does not stop abortions, however. There are over 70,000 illegal abortions per year in Zimbabwe according to a report on www.PubMed.gov . That is an average of 273 per day!! The death rate of these women is very high as well. This article from www.allafrica.com tells the story: http://allafrica.com/stories/200911230180.html.
Zimbabwe: Woman Dies, Secretly Buried After Abortion
23 November 2009
Harare — AN Epworth woman and her daughter are on the run after a botched backyard abortion that resulted in the death of a city woman and the subsequent illegal burial of her corpse in a shallow grave last week.
Lina Mukare (65) is reported to have carried out an illegal abortion on Febbie Muchono of Sunningdale 2, who subsequently died from complications arising from the termination of her pregnancy.
Mukare, who fled her home after Muchono's death, left her two daughters Wendy and Beauty Mutame who allegedly buried the corpse when they realised their mother would not be returning home. […]
The Ministry of Health and Child Welfare says on average 273 abortions are performed daily in Zimbabwe, most of them clandestinely.
What is so difficult about “Thou shalt not kill”? (Exodus 20:13) What a mess these people are in.

Zimbabwe is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and sexual exploitation. Large scale migration of Zimbabweans to surrounding countries—as they flee a progressively more desperate situation at home—has increased, and NGOs, international organizations, and governments in neighboring countries are reporting an upsurge in these Zimbabweans facing conditions of exploitation, including human trafficking. Rural Zimbabwean men, women, and children are trafficked internally to farms for agricultural labor and domestic servitude and to cities for domestic labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Women and children are trafficked for domestic labor and sexual exploitation, including in brothels, along both sides of the borders with Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa, and Zambia. Young men and boys are trafficked to South Africa for farm work, often laboring for months in South Africa without pay before “employers” have them arrested and deported as illegal immigrants. Young women and girls are lured to South Africa, the People’s Republic of China, Egypt, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada with false employment offers that result in involuntary domestic servitude or commercial sexual exploitation. Men, women, and children from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, and Zambia are trafficked through Zimbabwe en route to South Africa. Small numbers of South African girls are trafficked to Zimbabwe for domestic servitude.
