Quickie Link: Uganda's Government Prepares Extermination of Gays
(Uganda) - Members of Ugandan Parliament have asked the government to use the Chogm summit to speak out against homosexuality. In a separate interview, Kawempe South MP, Ssebuliba Mutumba said, "We call for seriousness on the part of the government to check homosexuality because it's illegal and a taboo." He said action was needed urgently because gays were increasingly becoming visible and this may lead to "a morally corrupted society."The Minister of Ethics and Integrity, Dr. James Nsaba Buturo, told Daily Monitor that a new law would be tabled soon. "As soon as Parliament resumes, we shall table a tough law. The government is doing everything possible to stamp out homosexuality."
