Police’s Criminal Investigations Department have commenced a hunt for former employee of Trust Network for Human Rights (TNHR), a community based organization in Gulu on allegations of being gay and recruiting youth into same sex relationships,contrary to Ugandan laws.
Abubaker Walusimbi a graduate of Makerere University and former resident of Lubowa village in Makindye Div.Wakiso District used his position as a community development officer to recruit youth into acts of homosexuality.
According to the Chairman of Awach village in Gulu, parents in the area complained several times that their sons are being seduced into homosexuality acts by Abubaker and had received enough evidence pinning him.
“We talked to his bosses and we decided to forcefully evict him from our village. A case was opened up against him and now parents are demanding for justice,” he said.
According to police, Abubaker was arrested in Lubowa village Makindye, a Kampala surbab on 27th May 2015 after being badly beaten by mob justice. He was later given police bond to go for a medical attention but has never turned up since then.
Police confirmed that his case was registered under file number SDRef 11/28/5/2015.
Mr. Musaazi, the father of Abubaker told police that his son started these acts since he was still young and has since grown up with them.
“Since he was a kid, he has been practicing these inhumane acts, i have tried stopping him from doing this but his mom failed me and that’s what led to the breakup of our marriage and our family at large,” Abubaker’s father confessed.
He however confirmed to police that his son fled to either America or South Africa and appealed to the said governments to deport him back to Uganda should they come across him.
