- Homosexuals are deviations from normal

President Museveni has warned western countries to stop wasting the time of humanity by trying to impose their social practices such as homosexuality on Africans.
While addressing Parliament Thursday afternoon at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds, the president said homosexuals are a deviation from normal.
“On the issue of homosexuals, we shall get the time and discuss the matter thoroughly. Homosexuals are deviations from normal. Is it by nature or by nurture? We need to answer those questions. We need a medical opinion on that,” the president said.
He went on to says “Sex is confidential, so why should the public know whether you are a homosexual or not unless you pronounce yourself,”
“In Europe, people marry their cousins but in Uganda and some other parts of Africa, it is taboo to marry your cousin, so should we impose sanctions on them? That is not our problem,” he added.
Speaking at the same event the Speaker of parliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among noted that the 11th parliament is eagerly waiting for the second reading of the Anti-homosexuality bill that is currently before the legal and parliamentary committee for scrutiny.
Part of the bill calls for "Criminalization of homosexuality, with a liability of imprisonment of two to ten years, for committing homosexuality, aggravated homosexuality, attempted homosexuality, aiding and abetting homosexuality, conspiracy to commit homosexuality and related practices."
