GOSSIP: M7 Shuns Perth CHOGM Over Gays
Gossip in corridors of power indicate President Yoweri Museveni shunned the Common Wealth Meeting in Perth fearing an international embarrassment.
A source says Museveni, through his friends in Europe, was alerted that international leaders intended to humiliate him for delaying to ‘kill’ the Anti-homosexuality Bill 2009.
Legislators last week somersaulted the Bill, which proposes a death penalty for convicts of aggravated homosexuality, to Parliament.
Once put to vote, the Bill is hugely expected to be passed into law, given the conservative nature of our legislators.
We are told the most-feared verbal missile attack was hugely expected from Britain.
“Museveni was told he would face fire for playing politics with human rights as he continues receiving donor funds for development,” a source added.
The President was also enlightened he would be told off for openly supporting Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi and abusing human rights through illegal detentions of Col. Kizza Besigye and other political opponents.
It was then that Museveni, at the last minute dispatched his Deputy Edward Ssekandi to withstand an anticipated storm in Australia.
US leader last year described David Bahati’s Bill as ‘odious’.
