Zimbabwe gays and lesbians attacked, lose cellphones and laptops

 

Assailants on Thursday used hammers to force entry into a Zimbabwean gay rights group's offices, where they locked employees in a room and then ransacked the premises, the organisation said.

The association reported that one of the men disguised as a mentally challenged person, threatened the security personnel controlling the gate with a Hammer whilst a visitor was driving into the GALZ premises.

"About 20 men besieged our office, rounded up the staff, including board members in a meeting. They collected our personal property, laptops and cell phones and fled," an activist with Galz (Gays And Lesbiana of Zimbabwe) told dpa.

In a statement on its website, the homosexuallity lobbying association thanked the police's "swift reaction" to the attack the perpetrators who later picked up for questioning by police in Harare and no one was injured, it said.

"We are not taking this incident as a random act of attempted robbery but that of youth militia acting on someone's orders. We applaud the conduct of the Zimbabwe Republic Police in apprehending these men who were bent on creating a situation of lawlessness in Zimbabwe. As a body that seeks to uphold and protect the rights of all human beings, GALZ condemns all acts of violence and theft and implore the Police to deal with all proponents of violence," said Galz.

Police declined a request for comment.

President Robert Mugabe has said in the past that gays are "worse than pigs and dogs".
