Robert Mugabe , the president of Zimbabwe , has waged a violent campaign against LGBT people , arguing that before colonisation, Zimbabweans did not engage in homosexual acts.  His first major public condemnation of homosexuality was in August 1995, during the Zimbabwe International Book Fair .  He told an audience: "If you see people parading themselves as lesbians and gays, arrest them and hand them over to the police!"  In September 1995, Zimbabwe's parliament introduced legislation banning homosexual acts.  In 1997, a court found Canaan Banana , Mugabe's predecessor and the first President of Zimbabwe, guilty of 11 counts of sodomy and indecent assault .  
Living In Peace: Once you have completed the looking, the understanding, the releasing of your buried emotions, you may find you have become accustomed to being in a more intense emotional state. The exercises above will heighten your overall emotionality. If you are relatively certain you have done what can be done, make a decision to live in peace, at peace with yourself, and at peace with others. You can decide this. Avoid those situations that you know will create conflict and upsets. You cannot change others, you can only change yourself. There are times where it’s important to stand and fight. It takes a lot of wisdom to “accept the things you cannot change, and change the things you can”. Wisdom to know the difference brings peace of mind.
