Uganda: Gay Activist Granted Asylum in US

Ugandan gay activist has been granted asylum in the US, Bridgette reports: “Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” Bill may have had a positive effect, if for at least one man. Kushaba Moses Mworeko must now be relieved that he is no longer facing eminent return to Uganda where he faces incarceration and possible death through non-governmental violence. Mworeko now has asylum.”

  • It’s sad to note that Uganda has such a bad record. As much as the main motive is to promote our culture we cannot deny the fact that there are better ways of eradicating “vices” other than by killing. That is where we got it all wrong.
