Uganda is set to literally wipe out gays in the country with a new a law that will make homosexuals condemned to death in the new anti-gay law set to be reintroduced.
Ethics and Integrity Minister, Simon Lokodo told news agency Reuters that when the new bill becomes law offenders will be sentenced to death:
Our current penal law is limited. It only criminalises the act. We want it made clear that anyone who is even involved in promotion and recruitment has to be criminalised. Those that do grave acts will be given the death sentence.”
He added that “homosexuality is not natural to Ugandans” and there had been a “massive recruitment by gay people” in schools and that they were promoting a “falsehood that people are born like that”.
In February 2014 President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a bill – that was known as the “Kill the Gays” bill – to toughen penalties against gay people.
