Personally we think this move against gays and lesbians is to take the heat off the Ugandan government - which is corrupt to the core - bribery, nepotism, murder - so what better way than to stir up trouble for these minority groups?

Typical African behaviour. gays and lesbian live in fear, but it is okay to rape and murder in African countries. They should rather look at their poverty due to over population.
