Uganda announces 'Kill the Gays' bill that will bring in the death penalty for homosexuals

The legislation - known as the 'Kill the Gays' bill - was nullified five years ago on a technicality, but the government now has plans to resurrect it within weeks.

'Homosexuality is not natural to Ugandans, but there has been a massive recruitment by gay people in schools, and especially among the youth, where they are promoting the falsehood that people are born like that,' Ethics and Integrity Minister Simon Lokodo said.

'Our current penal law is limited. It only criminalises the act. We want it made clear that anyone who is even involved in promotion and recruitment has to be criminalised. Those that do grave acts will be given the death sentence.'

African countries like Uganda have some of the world's most prohibitive laws governing homosexuality. Same-sex relationships are considered taboo and gay sex is a crime across most of the continent, with punishments ranging from imprisonment to death.

Earlier this year, Brunei sparked an international outcry over plans to impose the death penalty for gay sex, backtracking only after intense criticism.

Lokodo said Uganda's bill, which is supported by President Yoweri Museveni, will be reintroduced in parliament in the coming weeks, and it is expected to be voted on before the end of the year.

He was optimistic it would pass with the necessary two-thirds of members present - a shortfall in numbers killed a similar bill in 2014 - as the government had lobbied legislators ahead of its re-introduction.

'We have been talking to the MPs and we have mobilised them in big numbers,' said Lokodo. 'Many are supportive.'

They should impose such laws to lesbians too. It is very disappointing them basing much on dealing with gays case. They both are sinning and broking the African moral values at the same time going out of the country's rules and laws.

Jibu hii si kweli. Africa has had homosexual people for thousands of years. This talk of "african moral values" is an invention after colonial laws. Sasa kwa nini kuna maneno mengi katika lugha za Kiafrika kwa mahomosexual kama wasigekuwepo zamani? Eti Kiswahili kuna maneno mengi, basha, mshoga, lawiti, afande na mengine. Ni maneno ya kale si ya juzi. Yametokea wapi kama watajwa hawakuwepo??
Sawa na kila sehemu ya dunia hata Afrika asilimia ndogo ya watu hupendelea jinsia yao, hawawezi kupenda jinsia nyingine. basi wapendane, waache wengine. tatizo wapi?

Okay... though am not sure but I can't oppose your what you said "Africa has had people engaging in homosexual about thousands years ago" maybe before colonialism is what you mean. But my comment I just wrote it regarding my feelings as a Christian.

And leme ask you one thing, do you have any proof about what you said?
