Uganda’s Speaker of Parliament Accuses Donors of Bullying; Forgets Uganda’s Bullying of Gays

According to the Uganda Sunday Monitor:

The Speaker of Parliament, Ms Rebecca Kadaga, has warned the West against “bullying” Uganda over passing the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

Addressing Uganda’s ambassadors abroad during a meeting with the House committee on Foreign Affairs yesterday, Ms Kadaga took a swipe at foreign countries for targeting Uganda, yet still keeping economic relations with other African countries with the same law.

As a taxpayer, I am glad the government is considering human rights in their donor decisions. I can think of a few other countries I would like to see get less money from the U.S. over human rights violations.

Speaker Kadaga should consider how she would like her government to bully gays.

Kadaga’s rhetoric makes me think that she is facing some heat internally. My guess is that she has political aspirations beyond being speaker and would like to use the gay issue in a populist appeal.
