DP asks government to bring back Anti-Homosexuality Bill 

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Democratic Party (DP) asked the government to bring back the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill if it is serious about fighting the vice in the country.

The remarks come at the time when schools are opening for the first term amidst the heated debates about homosexuality which has since taken shape across all corners of the country as people devise suggestions on how to protect the children against the vice.

Debates have already taken place on the floor of Parliament amid reports about sexual minorities gaining ground in schools.

Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among has since directed the Education Committee to investigate schools suspected of encouraging LGBTQ rights. She told committee members to look into social media stories about gays in which a teacher is transferred from one school to another because of being gay.

Speaking to the media in Kampala on Tuesday, Ismail Kiirya the Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) president who was speaking on behalf of the party, said homosexuality remains illegal in Uganda, despite a 2016 court ruling that found the 2014 Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act invalid on procedural grounds.


  1. Homosexuality will remains illegal in Uganda as long as Jesus Christ remains the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords in Uganda 🇺🇬. Because Uganda is a For God and my country. Period.
    The wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah will never have room in Uganda. The ones who supports that kind of wickedness must take it back to he’ll where they brought it from.

    I don’t even see the reason why the parliament still has time to debate that kind of sin in the country??? Shame…

  2. To those who haven’t understood how some of these things work… “there is no such thing as bad publicity”.

    Many children, even adults, become curious and are drawn to the things they are warned about. There are many Ugandans (perhaps even most Ugandans), who would have never even heard about homosexuality, but now when it becomes a national preoccupation, every day we are seeing and hearing things of gayism in the media, nobody is spared.

    In other words, parliament has been inadvertently promoting homosexuality and even this article inadvertently promotes homosexuality.

    Since raising awareness can backfire, quiet censorship is probably the best approach. Just quietly remove all materials, references etc from the country, impose a strict media blackout on all things related to gayism, and we let the issue finish and disappear from Uganda… instead of making a lot of noise and inadvertently promoting the very thing we are refusing.

    And most importantly, we continue praying for Uganda.

    “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
    – Ephesians 6:12
