U.S. cuts aid to Uganda, cancels military exercise over anti-gay law ****There’s no gay agenda****
“(Reuters) – The United States on Thursday cut aid to Uganda, imposed visa restrictions and canceled a regional military exercise in response to a Ugandan law that imposes harsh penalties on homosexuality.
The White House said in a statement the measures were intended to “reinforce our support for human rights of all Ugandans regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.”
Homosexuality is taboo in most African countries and illegal in 37, including in Uganda where it has been a crime since British rule.
Uganda’s new law, signed by President Yoweri Museveni in February, imposes jail terms of up to life for “aggravated homosexuality” which includes homosexual sex with a minor or while HIV-positive.
Widely condemned by donor countries, the law also criminalize lesbianism for the first time and makes it a crime to help individuals engage in homosexual acts.
Western donors, including the United States, had halted or re-directed about $118 million in aid to the east African nation’s economy before Thursday’s announcement.
The White House said on Thursday the United States would impose visa restrictions on Ugandans it believes have been involved in human rights violations, including gay rights. The United States will halt $2.4 million in funding for a Ugandan community policing program in light of a police raid on a U.S.-funded health program at Makerere University and reports of people detained and abused while in police custody.
In addition, Washington will shift some funding for salaries and travel expenses of Ugandan health ministry employees to non-governmental agencies involved in health programs. It will also reallocate $3 million in funding for a planned national public health institute in Uganda to another African country, which it did not name. A National Institutes of Health genomics meeting would be moved from Uganda to South Africa, the White House said. It also canceled plans for a U.S.-sponsored military exercise in Uganda that was meant to include other East African countries. A date had not yet been set for the exercise. Uganda is a key Western ally in the fight against Islamic extremism in Somalia, where Ugandan troops for the backbone of the African Union force battling al Qaeda-aligned militants.
U.S. special forces have also been involved in the hunt for Joseph Kony, the elusive rebel commander seeking to topple the Ugandan government. Kony is believed to be hiding in the jungles of central Africa. In Kampala, a government official asked about the U.S. measures said that Uganda would not alter its decision to toughen laws against homosexuals. “Uganda is a sovereign country and can never bow to anybody or be blackmailed by anybody on a decision it took in its interests, even if it involves threats to cut off all financial assistance,” government spokesman Ofwono Opondo said.
U.S. President Barack Obama previously told Museveni the law would complicate relations between the two countries. Since then Washington has been reviewing its funding to Uganda, while privately pressing Museveni’s government to repeal the law.

“I would like to discourage the USA government from taking the line that passing this law will “complicate our valued relationship” with the USA as President Obama said. “Countries and Societies should relate with each other on the basis of mutual respect and independence in decision making,” Museveni said in a statement. He reassured all Ugandans and the international community of its continued commitment and respect for the rule of law.
Amurdikkka’s history of terrorism against it’s first population and subsequent ones, including the ones that look like the current elite, are well documented. However, since the dumbing down of the country through the public school system has created a bread and circus mentality,where the people of Amurdikkka takes it’s knowledge not from books, but from CNN, Fox News and TMZ.
The United States has less than 5 percent of the world’s population. But it has almost a quarter of the world’s prisoners. Read the rest of the report here
I put this up to show you how much Amurdikkka is about human rights protection and abroad, yet fail to do the same in their own backyard. The pictures below shows Amurdikkas glory and how it built and continues to build on its super power status….
To all the knee-grows who foolishly believe that this is about hating and beating up homosexual and there is a fight to protect homosexuals so they can practice their particular brand of relationships…you need to either break the chains of slavery, or go hang yourself.
As well if your priority is not about remembering the Ma’afa and ensuring that it never happens again. If your priority is not to remind your children, your neighbors and your friends what the horrors of chattel slavery has wrought on the bodies and psyche of Afrikans living in Amurdikkka. When your priority is not to seek reparations or divesting yourself from the house you built but you are not accepted as a tenant in…Amurdikkka, you should go hang yourself.
This is your president. This is your president. this is your president who used to smoke crack and visit homosexual bath houses in Chicago. This is your president being the whore for the corporate and white supremacist agenda
