Uganda President Refused To Sign Anti-Gay Bill Into Law
Uganda's president, Yoweri Museveni has refused to approve the controversial anti-gay bill passed by the country's parliament that would see homosexuals jailed for life.
In a letter to parliament, the president who described homosexuals as abnormal said there were better ways to "rescue" people from their "abnormality", adding that homosexuality was caused by either "random breeding" or a need to make money and lesbians, he said, chose female partners because of "sexual starvation" and the failure to marry a man.
"You cannot call an abnormality an alternative orientation. It could be that the Western societies, on account of random breeding, have generated many abnormal people," he said.
He added that even with legislation, they will simply go underground and continue practicing homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons.
According to him, improving the nation's economy would stop people becoming gay.
