Museveni warns the West on ‘homosexuality teachings’

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni has accused the West of ‘attempting to corrupt his mind’ when it comes to dealing with the issues with his country.

While addressing the 4th Youth Business Forum and Expo at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds on October 25, 2023, the Head of State stressed that the country has its ways of dealing with the issues of the people.

He said that those who have been trying to teach him on how to deal with election-related issues and the recent case of tough laws on homosexuality are just wasting their time.

“I really feel sorry for Europeans, they have been misusing their opportunities, they come to tell me how to organise elections, I am the expert on elections, and you can call me to help you. They also tell me how to handle homosexuals, please, I know how to handle homosexuals,” Museveni said.

“Tell these Europeans to leave us alone.”

Museveni also said that his eloquence in speaking English is an added advantage for him to work closely with the European people, only if they agree on the working terms and conditions.

“I’m not speaking Chinese, I’m not speaking Russian, and I’m not speaking Turkish. I’m speaking English. So, I can easily work with you the Europeans if you are disciplined,” Museveni said.

Museveni recently signed an anti-homosexual law, prohibiting the act in the country. The law also hands lengthy jail terms, of up to two decades, to those who engage and promoting homosexuality.

The move to ban the act in the country was largely criticised by Western countries including the US, who announced that they would cut their funding to the East African country.

The revised harsh anti-LGBTQ law was also criticized by the vocal South African opposition leader Julius Malema.

Malema of the Economic Freedom Front also led protests in South Africa to oppose the move taken by President Museveni, but it didn’t stop him from signing to law.

Uganda is now among the countries with tough anti-LGBTQ laws as Kenya allows the registration of LGBTQ associations.
