When hate hits the country were are we to have shelter
In Uganda due to widespread ignorance about sexual orientation the hatred of homosexuals has increased of recent now in most of the schools children ared being given ant gay sermons .the hate propaganda is so effective in that even in the rural areas people are beginning to express their hate for gays some even promising to killed,disown their children in case they become homosexuals. In one village person trying to explain to rural people about the gays having their rights was seriously beaten only to be saved by the local council accusing him of trying to recruit children int acts of homosexuality. Persecution of homosexual is so common, intimidation and this is being done by the police but nothing can be done some people have been lynched now the new bill has put gays at the lime light .so in Uganda you have to be so care full if people identify you your life is danger and in case anything happens to you the police will begin accusing you if people tell them that you are a homosexual do not expect much protection from the police avery good case study is that of Kato Uganda police accused him of wanting to force aboy into having sex with him
