President Yoweri Museveni on Wednesday defied international calls to rescind an anti-gay law.
“The signing of the bill is finished, no one will move us,” Museveni said in a statement after a meeting with members of his National Resistance Movement party.
“The NRM has never had two languages, what we tell you during the day is what we shall tell you during the night,” he added.
The law signed by Museveni carries the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality,” an offense that includes transmitting HIV through gay sex.
The enactment of this law announced on Monday, drew immediate rebukes from shameless Western governments that have since threatened not to fund Uganda anymore not until it allows promotion of evil homosexuality acts.
U.S. President Joe Biden threatened aid cuts and other sanctions, while Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the government would consider visa restrictions against Ugandan officials.
But yesterday, Information Minister Chris Baryomunsi rejected the condemnation saying, “We do not consider homosexuality as a constitutional right. It is just a sexual deviation which we do not promote as Ugandans and Africans.”
“While we appreciate the support we get from partners, they must be reminded that we are a sovereign country and we do not legislate for the Western world. We legislate for our own people here in Uganda. So that kind of blackmail is not acceptable.”
