BBC Interview with Uganda’s President, Yowari Museveni

Here is 4 minutes of it…

You can listen to the entire interview here.

Hmm, he might run again in 2016?

Museveni doesn’t believe in promotion of homosexuality – sounds like Bahati.

    It’s the old old story: ‘we’ll take action against straights if they do such-and-such; we’ll take action against gays EVEN IF THEY HAVEN’T done such-and-such, just in case they were going to do it.’ To ‘donor’ countries, this is no longer acceptable.

    Museveni talks of ‘recruitment of children’: well then, punish it if / when it has been proven to have happened, just as one would do with straights (there is the legal wherewithal to do that, so the Bahati Bill is completely unnecessary), and take suitable steps to prevent, as far as possible, child sexual abuse in all its manifestations.

    Cunning like a fox…anything to be popular, demonizing the marginalized and persecuting anyone that he can get to validate is disgusting humanship…Bahati is simply a very spiritually/emotionally challenged man and Bishop Orombi is a common grandstanding thief/thug…it´s especially interesting to see this cluster of bums (has nothing to do money) congratulated themselves on being Godly and protecting children– this is the land of childwitchburning (on the rise), sexual slavery, rampant alcoholism, common whoremongering…oh, and yes, they are Christians…you can´t tell by the way they behave, in fact, they are down right dangerous to fellow human beings.

    @ Leonardo

    I would caution against making statements that could be seen as ‘general’ statements about Ugandan society. Ugandan society, like any other, has its problems, but I do know many decent and thoughtful Ugandans who are very embarrassed by the vicious demagoguery of people like Bahati. There are also societal characteristics evident in Ugandan that are wholesome and good. For example, unlike what happens in some other African countries, there has been a encouraging diversity of views expressed BY UGANDANS on the Bill.

    The ‘protecting children’ leitmotiv of the Bahatis and ‘Maazis’ of this world is, of course, a complete diversion. The fact that Museveni appears to be buying into it is very worrying, and the suspicion is that he could try to use it to attempt to justify what is simply an attack on freedom of conscience, expression and assembly.

    As for the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ issue: I think that even a ‘Maazi’ Bill (a watered-down Bahati Bill) would, if passed, run into trouble in the Ugandan courts. Sticking up for fair and reasonable treatment (i.e. saying that one should not be subject to discriminatory penal legislation and/or arbitrary violence) is not the same as ‘promoting’ a particular course of action, and I think that the ULS is very mindful of this, and the constitutional implications thereof – hence its criticism of the Bill.

    If people like ‘Maazi’ are not careful, they could all too easily end up with an act that both fails to do what they want it do and causes the redirection of funds away from the Ugandan Exchequer. They should drop this nonsense now … primarily perhaps for their own good.

    Unfortunately, my computer system cannot play the BBC interview. But I am confident that our Numero Uno understands that our parliament means business this time around

    Museveni doesn’t believe in promotion of homosexuality – sounds like Bahati.

    Sounds like most Ugandans (regardless of class, creed, religion, socio-economic class, ethnicity and gender—i.e. male or female only)

    Orombi is a common grandstanding thief/thug…

    The obsessive hatred of Bishop Orombi continues unabated !!! Unfortunately the Reverend gentleman does not even know you exist not to mention that you foam in the mouth whenever you think of him.

    If people like ‘Maazi’ are not careful, they could all too easily end up with an act that both fails to do what they want it do and causes the redirection of funds away from the Ugandan Exchequer. They should drop this nonsense now … primarily perhaps for their own good

    Patronizing Nonsense !!!

    Looks like our ‘Maazi’ is upset.
