Hi,Everyone , it's Magembe Norman from Uganda. I filed a complaint to the International Criminal Court against 3 Ugandans I.E David Bahati, Giles Muhame and Martin Ssempa for persecution of gays in Uganda which is a crime against humanity. I followed this up by starting a petition on change.org asking the I.C.C to investigate and prosecute these 3 top homophobic Ugandans for crimes against humanity. I am writing therefore to respectfully request you to support my petition by signing it and also to spread to others to sign as well . The link to the petition is below.
