Speaking on the sidelines of a DCC 6 Women’s League meeting on the constitution, the Chairperson of the Harare ZANU PF Women’s League, Cde Mary Chatibura echoed the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe’s tough stance against the foreign practice of same-sex relationships, saying it is alien to African values and beliefs.


“The West wants us to have same sex relationships as a way to annihilate the African race. A woman marrying another woman, it’s absurd. Women, let us fight this inhuman behaviour in our numbers,” Cde Chatibura said.


Speaking at the same occasion, Harare Provincial Women’s League Secretary for Information and Publicity, Cde Emma Mbumbwa said women should go in their numbers to the outreach meetings and express their opinions.


“Women shall leave whatever they are doing on these special days. It’s a time for women to reflect on issues they have been marginalised by their male counterparts,”  Cde Mbumbwa said.


The outreach process of the constitution making process is expected to be concluded towards the end of this month, paving way for the data compilation stage in preparation for the referendum.
