Malema accuses Yoweri Museveni of using anti-homosexuality for politics
EFF leader Julius Malema said the Ugandan president wants to use the anti-homosexuality bill against his political opposition.
JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema said the Ugandan president seeks to use the anti-homosexuality bill against his political opposition.
Earlier in April, the Ugandan Parliament passed a bill that would see same-sex conduct as a criminal offence.
Malema cautioned Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni against passing a law that would pose a threat to the lives of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex [and questioning] community as well as the lives of his political opposition.
Speaking to EFF supporters at the party’s march against the bill, Malema called for other countries in the continent to stand in solidarity for human rights in spite of individual identity.
"One day, with this law, Museveni can wake up and say that bobby wine is gay. Not because he's gay but because he disagrees with him politically. He just says he's gay, and according to the law, he must be killed. He's going to use this law to kill his political opponents and he must be stopped, and he must be stopped now."
