Witchcraft "legalized" in Zimbabwe...Ironically not same sex practices.
The Zimbabwean government has lifted a centuries-old ban on witchcraft which first appeared back in colonial times when the hunting and burning of witches was rampant in Europe.
Of course like many other indigenous peoples, Zimbabweans have always believed in the supernatural and from day one they have believed the ban to be absurd since most of them are superstitious to an extent.
This comes as no surprise though. With the most notorious homophobe as its head of state, the government has long been known for using minimal issues as scapegoats to avoid dealing with the country's declining economy and so forth.
