Yoweri Museveni - the anti-Gay President of Uganda

Yoweri Museveni
Yoweri Museveni, the President of Uganda, has signed into law an anti-gay bill that makes some homosexual acts punishable by life in prison. 

Homosexuality is already illegal in Uganda. Now it is more illegal. 

The bill also includes provision for heavy prison terms for anyone who councils or reaches out to gays, lesbians or transgenders.

Sort of sounds like 1814 instead of 2014, doesn't it? 

Museveni had several comments to make about the passage of this legislation including:
  • He will not allow western societies to impose their views on Uganda.
  • Ugandans are not happy with the way in which the Western World conducts its
    Idi Amin 
  • Homosexuality is "learned and can be unlearned" (presumably after 20 years of imprisonment).
  • If the West won't give Uganda foreign aid, then he will work with others (presumably China and Russia) who will give Uganda the money it needs to survive. 
Uganda can't survive on its own. It's too backward and too corrupt. Uganda is one of the poorest nations in the world, with 37.7% of the population living on less than $1.25 a day.

Uganda received 1,786 million dollars in foreign aid in 2009. Often foreign aid money somehow "goes astray" in Uganda and millions of dollars go missing and into someone's pocket.  But who's pocket?

Another wierdo, Idi Amin, was the president of Uganda from 1971 to 1979.

Idi Amin's rule was characterised by human rights abuse, political repression, ethnic cleansing, tribal warfare, corruption, and gross economic mismanagement. No one knows how many people Idi Amin killed but it is estimated to be anywhere from 100,000 to half a million.  

He also expelled 80,000 Asians from the country because he didn't want non-Africans running businesses in Uganda.

Ugandans love their cruel, bizarre, backward and corrupt leaders.  But we don't.  

It's time that the Western Governments curtail foreign aid to Uganda. The almost 2 billion dollars given to Uganda every year could be spent in our own jurisdictions helping our own people and promoting our own agendas.   Our own agendas do not include the passage of discriminatory and barbaric laws against identifiable groups. Our own agendas do not include the passage of 19th century laws in the 21st century. 

We also don't like to be told by Uganda:  "Give us your money and then go **** yourself."  

God save Africa from the dictators and the war-lords and the nutters.  It is time. Amen.
