Gay sex remarks lands Zimbabwe lawmaker in jail

In Zimbabwe, alleging the president had gay sex can get you arrested.

The BBC News relays that local media said lawmaker Lynette Karenyi was held for seven days after telling supporters at a rally that President Robert Mugabe had sex with two male politicians.

Karenyi, who was released Thursday on bail, has denied insulting the president, which is a crime in Zimbabwe.

Mugabe is known for his extremist anti-gay views, having called gays "worse than pigs or dogs."
