Malawi Couple Breaks Up, One Denounces "Gay Trash" And Gets Engaged To Woman

We can't know what horrible pressure or threats that have been placed on Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga to have the situation come to this latest development. From the Malawi-based newspaper The Nation:
In a dramatic twist to the tale of Malawi’s convicted but pardoned gay lovebirds, the man, Steven Monjeza, has dumped his homosexual 'wife' Tiwonge Chimbalanga to marry a Blantyre-based woman. Twenty-four-year old Dorothy Gulo on Monday confessed her love for Monjeza whom she described as "a real man capable of doing to women what other men ably do in bed." She was explicit about the issue and said she had nothing to hide. "I have tried him on two occasions and he proved to me he can live with a woman. I was impressed with him when my curiosity got the better of me and here I am. My only worry is what Chimbalanga would do if he found out," said Gulo, who does nothing for a living. She said they have been living together for some days after their meeting in Mbayani where she was living with her parents. Gulo said Monjeza complimented her on her looks. Said Gulo: "I did not immediately realise it was Monjeza because I knew his story. I only recognised him after a while. Right now, I am looking forward to a future together. I don't care what people say, because many are talking. I am yet to tell my parents about us." An excited Monjeza said he no longer wanted to be associated with what he called "gay trash" as he had found real love in Gulo.
Steven Monjeza now says the entire relationship with Tiwonge was a lie: "We were pardoned but I know the law can bounce back on us if we are not careful. Although I claimed that I still love Tiwo, I did not mean it. I have never had sex with him as was revealed in court. That is why the medical examination failed to establish any anal penetration. I was coerced into the whole thing."

Monjeza says that while he has been offered asylum in many nations, he doesn't want to move "to be used by gay men." He also claims that a white man in a jeep came to try to convince him to return to Tiwonge. In the above-linked story, he threatens to "expose" any gay people that approach him in the future. Clearly he has been properly coached to follow the party line spawned by American evangelicals that white Westerners are bringing homosexuality to Africa.
