More lies about LGBTQIA communities from a Ugandan politician.
A minor candidate in Uganda’s presidential election campaign has made news by unveiling an anti-LGBTI proposal that’s based on factual errors and major misunderstandings about the experiences of Uganda’s sexual minorities.
Presidential candidate Abed Bwanika, a Ugandan veterinarian, politician and pastor, said that, if elected, he would establish a “moral re-correction centre” for “all homosexuals” in Uganda. “We cannot accept to be pushed into homosexuality by the West,” he said, as reported by the Daily Monitor.
“All homosexuals (in Uganda) will be rehabilitated because they have demons and we have specialists to chase out demons,” he claimed.
The election of Feb. 18, 2016, will mark the third presidential bid by Bwanika, who won the support of less than 1 percent of Ugandan voters during his two previous campaigns, in 2006 and 2011.
