Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill: Why is Bobi Wine Speaking in Tongues

Singer and politician Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine, the leader of Uganda’s main opposition National Unity Platform (NUP) party, has explained why he has not come out to categorically state the position of his political organization in the wake of the 2023  Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

Just this week, Bugiri Municipality MP and Jeema party leader Asuman Basalirwa introduced the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

But on Saturday, March 12, Bobi Wine told a Buganda Kingdom television show that President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s government was using the proposed piece of legislation to divert Ugandans from scandals that have cast his ministers in bad light. The scandals include the iron sheets saga where a number of ministers are accused of diverting iron sheets meant for Karamoja sub-region.

Bobi Wine also believes that Museveni’s government wants to use the bill to cause a rift between his political opposition and their donors abroad, especially those in the West where the LGBTQ movement is vibrant.

Speaking to BBS TV, Bobi Wine noted that Ugandans’ position on homosexuality was clear — and so was that of the West. He claimed that Museveni was interested in putting him in the hot seat so that people could hear his views on the controversial issue, and probably shun him.

Based on his submission, Bobi Wine seemed to have avoided giving a clear and straightforward answer so that he could not face the consequences of his stand on the matter.

All he said was that those around him as well as members of his party’s top leadership were well aware of his position on homosexuality rights. He also reminded his haters that he has not been allowed to step in the UK for nearly a decade because of his strong views on LGBTQ rights.

With his UK travel ban now in its ninth year, Bobi Wine also revealed that he was mulling over the possibility of challenging the ban in a competent court of law.

Bobi Wine also used the show to rap religious leaders for failing to condemn human rights violations with the same vigor as they have opposed homosexuality. Recently, Muslim clerics held a peaceful demonstration to make their opposition to LGBTQ rights clear.

Also, Archbishop Samuel Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu of the Anglican Church of Uganda came out to officially announce that Uganda was breaking away from the Church of England after Canterbury allowed same-sex weddings. (See Details Here).

The NUP leader also wondered why the West would block aid over Museveni’s anti-homosexuality stand yet keep sending Uganda billions in aid when the state continues to commit human rights violations.

Last month, President Museveni revealed how a top American politician tried to convince him to allow homosexuality in Uganda. (Read Story Here).
