Uganda president Yoweri Museveni has spoken out on his promise to sign the anti-homosexuality bill into law saying he wanted to ascertain whether some people can be born homosexuals.

The reason I had not signed the bill is to scientifically answer the question; are there people genetically born homosexual? For me, I had thought that since there were people born albino there could be people born homosexual.” president Museveni said.

President Museveni made these remarks during the closing ceremony of the 10-day retreat of the ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) parliamentary caucus in Kyankwanzi, west of the country on Sunday.

On Friday, president Yoweri Museveni has told legislators of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party at their retreat in Kyankwanzi that he will sign the Anti-homosexuality bill into law.

The president revealed that whereas he had no problem with punishing people who promote homosexuality, become gay for mercenary reasons and exhibitionists, he had to take precautions because he is answerable as a leader.

Am taking all these precautions because am historically answerable for whatever I do as a leader. There were mistakes made in the 1930s by Hitler because he wanted to make Germany strong..Some of these issues are very crucial and should be handled objectively not emotionally.” he said.

On December 20, the Ugandan Parliament passed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, allowing for greater punishments for gay people, and those who fail to report them to police.

He added “I had not concentrated my mind on homosexuality all these years. I thought electricity, roads, were more urgent things. Moreover, I had never seen a homosexual”

The president warned that the country should brace itself for a fight from what he called outsiders.

“I know we are going to have a big battle with outsiders, but I will be able to say I asked scientists and this is what they said. That homosexuals are normal people behaving abnormally.” he said.

  1. I think it is important to prepare the nation for what is coming with regard to the signing of this law. Opondo, Ankunda, the Kagingo lady, all national media outlets, including print media and the fellows at the media centre, should run headlines to the effect that, “the country should brace itself for a fight from outsiders”, because it is surely coming and it will affect us all as Ugandans. The Ugandan people must be well informed of the consequences of our decision to govern ourselves as we wish and they should be prepared.

  2. Black people have for a long time stomached the deeds of white people, it is now or never that we fight these devils.. Let us restore back our long ago lost glory. God bless us as we prepare for this fight..

    1. Except this is a case of black people (African governments) vs. black people (African gays and lesbians).

  3. There is nothing to worry about if the outsiders want to isolate Ugandans then be it, infact we need to scrutinize those whites coming to Uganda to avoid infiltration of the promoters of homosexuality, those countries that are critical of Uganda for taking this decision should know that we have a very strong culture to preserve as Africans

  4. If Uganda is trying to separate themselves from the international community because they rather listen to a bunch of bigoted Evangelical bullies than mainstream science, let them. If in a year from now their already tiny economy is completely crashing and poverty even worse, they can go beg Martin Ssempa for some of his cucumbers and other phallic vegetables.

  5. What a sad and ignorant decission. Who are these scientist Museveni is referring to? A country will never be great without freedom, how does porn or homosexuality put a threat to your way of living? Homosexuality is not a perversion. it is about loving a person of the same sex. It is not about “eating tha poopoo” as one of your countrymen so eloquently puts it. I hope my country, Denmark, stops the financial aid to Uganda until this law is changed. Your president should go back and focus on electricity and roads that seems more sensible.
    Good luck to you all.

    1. kasp have you ever been fucked in the ass and if so and you enjoyed it please keep it within your fellow denmark people and dont pop your nose into our business.

  6. I am saddened that your country cannot make moves towards peace and love of all people. Yours is a country that pretends to speak for Christianity but there is nothing less Christian than judging others and than hurting others. Christ was compassionate, not a thug, not a killer. May you see the ills of your ways! I for one do not forgive you.
