Ugandan Tabloid Paper Publishes List of ‘Top 200 Homos’ in the Country.
A day after President Musoveni signed a controversial anti-gay law in Uganda, ‘Red Pepper’, a local tabloid paper - one of the country’s biggest - has published a list of Uganda’s ‘Top 200 Homos’.
Concerns about this leading to a ‘witch-hunt’ against the named individuals are high as this bares a striking similarity to what we saw four years ago in the now defunct Ugandan tabloid newspaper ‘Rolling Stone’. Many say Rolling Stone’s actions led to the brutal murder of leading Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato months later.
In Nigeria, following the recent enactment of a law that criminalizes homosexuality, many reports have surfaced that claim that gay men in various parts of the country have been attacked and arrested as a result of this measure.
