President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has revealed why he does not kiss his wife in public. According to President Museveni, public display of affection is “un-African”

“If I kissed my wife in public, I would lose all the elections in Uganda. Because Africans don’t show what is private in public. If you want to kiss you know the address of kissing where it is,” President Museveni said.

The Uganda head of state also delved into the host subject of homosexuality which he termed as a deviation from normal.

“We are being pressured by groups who say there are two ways to life. There is the normal way and there is the parallel way of the homosexuals and all. This is not our interpretation. Homosexuals were here a long time ago. I hear one of them was a chief, another one a king. They were not killed. They were not praised and promoted. It was not put out that it was a normal way,” Museveni said.

Four years ago, President Museveni warned Ugandans publicly against practices promoted by outsiders.

“One of them is what they call oral sex. Th mouth is for eating not for sex,” he said back then.
