President Museveni said if Ugandans do not want him, he will just go home- Museveni also denied claims that homosexuals are being maltreated in Uganda
Uganda President Yoweri Museveni has said he is ready to go home if he loses the highly presidential elections slated for tomorrow Thursday, January 14.
Wax lyrical, the 76-year-old president assured the world if Ugandans prove they do not want him to solve their issues, he will go back to his home and do his own things.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, January 12, Museveni also rubbished claims that homosexuals in Uganda were being persecuted or harassed for their sexual orientation.
If I lost a fair election I would accept the results. Uganda is not my house. I’ll go to my house if I lose and do my own things if the people of Uganda don’t want me to help them with their issues,” he sa”Homosexuals are not new to Africa.
But we have got a different view of them. We think they are deviants. They are not killed or harrassed but we do not promote them.
While maintaining his hard stance on homosexuality, he said they were not in any kind of danger but they were also not being promoted like what happens in the United States and other Western countries.”We do not agree with your western way of life of promoting homosexuality as an alternative way of life,” he told the CNN reporter.
This came a day after his main opponent, MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine dismissed rumours spread by his political opponents about his sexual orientation.
The aspirant also rubbished claims that he is being funded by homosexual groups .
I am married to a woman you all know, it is a shame, it is disrespectful and I feel insulted to be involved in the sex talk when we have few hours to elections,” he said
In 2014, Museveni signed into law a controversial law that made some homosexual acts punishable by life in prison
