Kampala, 19 April 2018 (MIA) – Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has said "outsiders" are trying to corrupt his people by convincing them to have oral sex, Newsweek reports.
During a public speech on Sunday, Museveni said that oral sex is “wrong” because mouths are “meant for eating.”
“Let me take this opportunity to warn our people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some of the outsiders,” Museveni told the audience. “One of them is what they call oral sex. The mouth is for eating, not for sex.”
“We know the address of sex; we know where sex is,” Museveni warned ominously, as the audience laughed.
Uganda’s President has overseen a crackdown against LGBTI people that has seen gay sex criminalized and gay rights activists beaten and killed during his rule.
In 2014, he signed a short-lived anti-homosexuality act that made it illegal for someone not to report another person for being gay.
“In a country where the climate for LGBTI people was already hostile and discriminatory, LGBTI people have faced a notable increase in arbitrary arrests, police abuse and extortion, loss of employment, evictions, and homelessness, and scores have fled the country. At least one transgender person has been killed since the bill was signed, in an apparent hate crime,” Human Rights Watch wrote at the time.
Newsweek describes Museveni as a flamboyant character who is frequently seen wearing large hats. In 2011, in an effort to win the hearts of the country’s youth, the now septuagenarian politician released a rap video. He has been president of Uganda since 1986 and is currently serving his sixth term in office.
He is known to make controversial statements and incoherent speeches. mr/13:01
