It is ironic that a country in Africa, bred out of oppression, racism, segregation and discrimination should now inflict the same disease on its own people. It is ironic that a country from Africa should embrace social strife and trepidation and use cultural beliefs as the basis for implementation. Africa has not been free from homosexuality. History has shown that a former Ugandan tribal King, Kabaka (King) Mwanga II Basammula Ekkere was bisexual.Why is this information important, simple, its nothing new.
The basis of Uganda’s present belief is that this ‘disease’ is a Western import, affecting their cultural and religious lifestyle and perverting their kids. Interesting thought. Uganda, like all countries in Africa has been affected by various Western influences including Religion and other lifestyles they now enjoy. Why cherry pick this disease and leave the other bad ones out of the equation? The West introduced their brand of alcohol, urban dress, urban music, television, the internet to name a few , are all Western “diseases” that have done some harm and good depending on what glass you are looking through.
Except for cultural African customs, all activities in Uganda are all derived and driven by outside and Western influences. This is a lame excuse for an immoral law. If it looks like discrimination it is discrimination.. Blaming God for executing this law is riding Christianity like how the Pharisees rode King Herod. Uganda is saying don’t blame us, blame Religion. God is tried of taking the blame.
The people of Africa, like all people all over the world are all different, some are straight, some are gay. Period. No law can stop it. I do not call this signing of the law human ignorance. I call it the Black holocaust. Like the Nazi treatment of the Jews, the color of the actors in this scenario has changed . It is Black on Black, brother against brother, sister against sister, a continent still on the plantation.
How ironic that a continent that fought racism and discrimination should now celebrate its emancipation with a single signature on a Law of Death that puts it right back to where it all started….the dark dark world of singular degradation of a few that led to blood shed. The soil of Africa is wet with the blood of its people. It seems that the people are still shedding blood, but this time its their own blood from their own people and they cannot blame anyone except themselves. Africa is weeping. Africa is bleeding.
