Sponsors in Uganda recruiting students into homosexuality
22 December 2014, 16:04
Kampala - The Speaker of Uganda Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga has warned Ugandan parents against getting excited about foreigners who claim that they want to sponsor their children for education.
While speaking Sunday evening at a fundraiser drive towards the construction of a church at Magogo in Igangaa district, she said that some of the sponsors have interest in recruiting unsuspecting children into homosexuality and gay activities.
''Some of those who say that they want to help you in educating your children instead want to teach them homosexuality. Our society should avoid such activities,'' she cautioned.
She said the gay community is planning to sponsor some people so they become members of Parliament during the 2016 general elections.
''They want to have at least 70 members in the next Parliament. We should not allow that to take place,'' she said.
Uganda last December passed a tough law against homosexuality but the passing of the law was challenged due to lack of quorum.
Efforts are being made to re-introduce the law so that it can be rightfully passed.
In Uganda, just like in most African communities, homosexuality is regarded a taboo. However, it is reported that international homosexuality organizations sponors some Ugandan students on condition that they become gays and homosexuals.
