In Zimbabwe there is a bitter and violent split within the Anglican Church in which lesbian and gay Zimbabweans are being used as a scapegoat.
Bishop Nolbert Kunonga was excommunicated in 2007 for inciting violence in sermons supporting President Robert Mugabe’s party, ZANU-PF. His speeches are dominated by accusations that those who oppose him are homosexuals or support them.
But many believe that the split is really about money and power: Kunonga has taken over the main cathedral in Harare, schools and the church’s bank accounts. Last month the nuns at an orphanage with 80 children were evicted. Police have been accused of siding with Kunonga in the fight for properties as they reportedly rush to arrest his rivals while leaving his people to cause terror.
