'random Breeding' Causes Homosexuality President Museveni

980 words - 4 pages

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has recently refused to sign into law a controversial bill that would fetch life imprisonment for homosexuals in Uganda. While refusing to sign the bill, President Museveni emphasized that there are more productive ways of solving the “homosexual problems,” which he called the "abnormality" that can be caused by "random breeding."
According to our authoritative source, the president wrote an eight-page letter to the MPs, and showed his displeasure at the lawmakers for passing the homosexual bill. Even though President Museveni did not hide his disapproval of homosexuality, which he labeled the "disgusting behaviors," he insisted positively that there are other ways of solving the “homosexual problems.” However, he frowned at those – especial Western world – who consider homosexuality as an "alternative orientation."
"What alternative? Which orientation? There is one and only sexual orientation called heterosexuality. Anything outside, this is abnormal – not alternative. When you come with your so – called “alternative,” it sounds more of experimentation, which should not be the case.” President Museveni fumed during a rare interview with Kata Kata reporter.

Asked what could have been the “cause of homosexuality,” the President insisted that the Western societies could have perhaps through "random breeding” generated the “abnormal people.”

In a similar interview with one of President Museveni’s personal guards, who asked for anonymity, he insisted that his boss, was being too “soft” on homosexuals. “This abnormal behaviour does not belong to our modern society. It is a deviation from the norm.” He insisted angrily.
However, the security genius did not tell our reporter how and where to draw the line between “abnormality” and “normality,” having in mind that the term “normality” is based on what one is used to. Furthermore, “normality” is usually ascribed to an entity, with what has gained currency being used as a judgmental standard. But “normality” is not always factual.

A very influential Ugandan politician Betina Muganzi also attributed one of the causes of homosexuality to poverty. She insisted that often people adopted the gay lifestyle due to "financial inducements." It was not clear to our reporter whether the politician based her conclusion solely on Africa terrain, having in mind that there are more open gays in rich countries in Europe and the USA than in Africa. Some of these homosexuals are extremely rich, if not millionaires. But that does not erase entirely the possibility that poverty could induce some into activities or acts they ordinarily would not want.

“Our government is busy building many industries and creating jobs. In fact, now that we have discovered oil in Uganda, I believe soon, the government will create jobs and we believe the problem of homosexuality will be minimized.” Betina Muganzi predicted optimistically.

Ironically, Ms Muganzi, like many Africans, does not have many...
