No Comment: Ugandan Homophobic Ethics Minister SIMON LOKODO bans 38 NGOs that "exist to destroyThursday, June 21, 2012 - 13:50, by Alex Engwete
"I have established beyond reasonable doubt that the 38 NGOs, if not
even more, exist not for humanitarian reasons but to destroy the
traditions and culture of this country by promoting homosexuality.
We found that, on the pretext of humanitarian concerns, these
organisations are being used to promote negative cultures. They are
encouraging homosexuality as if it is the best form of sexual
If the NGOs continue to operate, they will be doing so illegally, they
will be apprehended and will have to face a court of law.
Homosexuality is illegal, unacceptable and strange to our culture. It
doesn't have any positive aspects at all. If homosexuality is
promulgated and legitimised, that will be like having no future of
society. There is no procreation between man and man or woman and
woman. We condemn it very strongly."
