Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has warned against campaigns supporting rights of homosexuals in the country.
Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda.
The president termed gay rights as “nonsense” during remarks made on Wednesday at a graduation ceremony at the National Defence College.
He added that he was glad to have attended a recent meeting in the US where issues of gay rights were not brought up.
The president said:
Quote Message: Don’t bring any more nonsense here… We were in Washington, [and] this time the Americans organised the meeting well because they didn’t bring up these issues. They concentrated on business which was good. They didn’t bring up issues about homosexuality. But if they would have brought those we would have had problems.”
