Police in Zimbabwe have arrested 2 gay activists in Harare, the nation's capital and largest city, the AP reported.

The men were arrested on Friday after police stormed the offices of the Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) rights group. Police say they were looking for evidence of pornography and dangerous drugs. Various computers and documents were seized by officials.

Ellen Chadehama, 34, and Ingatius Mhambi, 38 – both employed by GALZ – remain in police custody Monday. Attorney David Hofisi says he has not been allowed to visit the pair in jail.

“It remains unclear what charges will be preferred against the two GALZ employees, but lawyers will continue to make attendances at Harare Central Police Station,” the lawyer said in a statement.

Saying gay men and lesbians are “destroying” the nation, Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has rejected a call to add sexual orientation as a protected class in a constitution being drawn up under a power-sharing deal.

At least 37 African countries currently outlaw being gay and anti-gay sentiment in common throughout the continent.

Last week, two men in Malawi were sentenced to a harsh 14-years of hard labor for participating in a symbolic engagement ceremony in December.
