Uganda Drops Death Penalty For Being a Gay

Homosexuality is abhorred in many parts of Africa, regarded as un-African, against Christian values and a Western perversion.

Ugandan gay activist David Kato was slain after ‘Rolling Stone’, a local newspaper, published names and photographs of gays under the headline “Hang them!”.

After intense international criticism, proponents of an anti-gay bill before Uganda’s parliament have removed a punitive clause that called for hanging people who have consensual homosexual sex.

Anti-gay activists have promoted the measure aggressively since it was introduced in 2009, accusing gays of recruiting children.
