The National Unity Platform Leader Robert Kyagulanyi defended himself, stating his friendship with homosexuals prompted the recently enacted and passed anti-gay law which he claims was a direct attack on him and his associates.
Kyagulanyi claims the law was passed to limit him and his supporters and not in the interest of Ugandans. However MPs from NUP unanimously voted for the law in Parliament though he says some of his MPs work for President Museveni.
Bobi Wine who reportedly received awards for supporting homosexuals was cornered on international television BBC to explain his stand on the Anti-Gay law, especially the anti-gay lyrics in a song he wrote and released in 2014 which calls for the public to “shoot all the batty men”. Bobi Wine’s lawyer requested that Bobi be granted travel permit to the UK to access the UK office because he had apologized for his actions and has been spending time mending the broken gay relationships.
The singer turned politician explained that he wrote the lyrics, sang them, took responsibility and now transformed. The Anti-Gay law which was enacted and passed months ago was overwhelmly supported by Ugandans including Religious leaders. Despite different political views, the vote against homosexuality was unanimous and personal by the MPs who sought to promote Uganda’s cultural and societal values. Since the Law was passed, it has generated scrutiny, segregation and suspension of projects by the international community who think otherwise.
