Overall, seventeen organisations have submitted a statement containing their protests and disapproval of the proposed changes, which would result in the death penalty for those who continue to engage in homosexual activity.
Ask yourself, who funds these groups that protested, and are they representative of all Ugandans? or are they self-interest groups?
Spokesperson for Sexual Minorities Uganda David Kato stated that the proposals are a "blow to democracy" in the country.
David Kato, a primary school headteacher is defiling young kids and recruiting them into homosexuality, using his position. I wonder how Ugandan's move to make their own law is a blow to democracy, it is ridiculous for other countries to even meddle in the Ugandan system, that is not democratic! And i thought Democracy is rule of Majority? 95% of Ugandans are opposed to homosexuality, what democracy are we talking about here?
"It goes against the inclusive spirit necessary for our economic as well as political development. Its spirit is profoundly undemocratic and un-African," he explained.
Human Rights Watch, the World AIDS Campaign and Amnesty International have also condemned the bill in recent months.
Earlier this month, Reuters reported that the general consensus among activists is that the private members' bill will be passed with a few alterations, but little opposition from the country's budget donors.
The proposed bill should be passed by all means to strengthen our laws.
