Uganda’s Ethics And Integrity Minister: Gays Should ‘Suffer Their Illnesses’ At Home

Last week, Simon Lotodo, Uganda’s Minister for Ethics and Integrity shut down a secret gay rights conference, claiming “We do not accept homosexuality in Uganda. So go back home” and is now warning other equality activists against assembling. “They cannot organize any other meeting. Let them remain at their homes and suffer their illnesses from there. For the love of God and humanity, I will leave no stone unturned until I defeat them and dissuade them from recruiting young people,” Lotodo told the press. Uganda’s Parliament recently reintroduced the “Kill The Gays” bill, which would allow the death penalty as punishment for homosexuality.
