UGANDAN M.P. – ‘Gay Rights Are Against African Culture’.
I really think more MSM attention needs to be paid to the connection of the fundamentalist Christian groups that visited Uganda and spread gay hate. And these sects need some form of attention paid to their financing and connections with hate groups.
A Ugandan newspaper reported on Thursday that the leader of Uganda’s delegation to the Pan African Parliament (PAP), Cecilia Atim Ogwal, had asked African legislators to reject the classification of homosexuality as a human right.
Addressing the Global African Diaspora Parliamentarians Summit in Midrand, South Africa on Wednesday, Ogwal, an opposition MP once referred to as the Iron Lady of Ugandan politics, reportedly said “homosexuality is foreign and is against African cultures.”
The newspaper reported Ogwal as saying, “Practices that are against African cultures are now classified as human rights. I am forced [by Western countries] to accept homosexuality. That is wrong and should be condemned; it cannot be accepted.”
The Uganda opposition MP was contributing to a presentation by Trusty Gina, chairperson of the PAP committee on Education, Culture, Tourism and Human Resources, on ‘African Diaspora: Education and Culture’.
The Summit brings together Africans living in the Diaspora for discussions with African legislators.
Ogwal told the gathering, “Homosexuality and lesbianism are alien to Africa and are considered witchcraft.”
