Zimbabwe's Prime Minister speaking to the Guardian.
Tsvangirai angered critics in the west earlier this year when he spoke out against homosexuality. But he said today: "We're not writing a constitution for the west, we're writing a constitution for Zimbabweans. It is Zimbabweans that have to give their views regarding that particular issue. I hope they will be progressive, they will be liberal, but I know how Zimbabweans feel about that particular subject."
Asked for his personal view, Tsvangirai said: "There's no such thing as personal view. If I give my personal view, people will say the prime minister is influencing what the outcome should be. My personal view is known publicly and I don't need to repeat that."Actually, nobody does know because on the one hand he 'speaks out' and on the other he backs down and supports 'progressive/liberal'.
Meanwhile Zimbabwe's organised LGBT are being raided by the police in order to, at least in part, keep them out of the discussion on the new constitution.
