Local analysts have condemned Western countries for attempting to impose immoral practices such as homosexuality to third world countries in need of aid.
This condemnation of the West’s bullish behaviour comes hard on the heels of Malawi’s acceptance of gay rights.
Malawian President Joyce Banda’s decision to repeal laws banning acts of homosexuality has courted controversy across the continent.
Local analysts say the Malawian leadership should not stoop so low as to act shamelessly for the sake of receiving foreign aid.
In February, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni openly castigated the West for imposing immoral practices on African states by attaching strings to their aid.
Mr Museveni boldly declared that the continent will never bow down to Western pressure and allow their moral decay to take root in Africa.
On several occasions, Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe has condemned homosexuality saying it has no place in Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe is currently in the process of writing a new constitution and allegations of attempts to smuggle Western interests such as homosexuality have resurfaced.
