On announcing his intention to sign a bill dubbed the “jail the gays” bill, the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni addressed a cheering crowd to say he was declaring “war on the homosexual lobby”.
This video shows him saying he will sign the bill, at which point the crowd cheers loudly.
However, he now believes a recent scientific report has provided him the proof he needs, and on Friday announced his intention to sign the bill to “protect Ugandans against social deviants”.
“The debate is, are you born homosexual or not. That’s not for you to answer. You should ask why you are putting yourself in trouble,” said Museveni.
“We shall have a war with the homosexual lobby, in the world, backed by these people and you,”
