Lasizwe:"I stand with Zimbabwe".
Zimbabwe folks: "we don't stand with gays"
Amidst their tragedy they still found a way to be homophobic.
We should all sit down ke moss if the support depends on who it comes from for it to matter. It's not OK!

This has also ruffled feathers of the LGBTQI community in the country, who have made it clear that they stand with Lasizwe and Zimbabweans must fight their own battles alone now.
Responding to the hate Lasizwe expressed how heartbroken he is, he wrote, “The homophobia I am currently experiencing from my fellow african brothers and sisters is heart breaking! We still have a long way to go for the LGBTQI community to be free in Africa.”
