At one point I put it to him: "Do you ever get out? Do you ever see the appalling state of your schools and hospitals?"
He said to me, "Julian, that is a very homosexual question."
At that time, the [British] government of Tony Blair contained a couple of ministers who were homosexual.
Mr Mugabe referred to them as "the gay mafia". He thought homosexuals were out to get him.
And therefore anybody who criticised him became "homosexual".
