– which has no relation to the American magazine of the same name – is edited by 22-year-old Giles Muhame, who argues that homosexuality is “more dangerous than smoking,” according to CNN
The paper recently listed 100 gay and lesbian people alongside the words “hang them.” Four people have been attacked in Uganda since that list appeared, according to gay-rights groups.
The new list includes addresses and, says CNN, “alleged intimate detail about the anatomy of people on it.”
Muhame has discouraged physical attacks on people, but is saying gay people are “recruiting” school students.
Meanwhile, the controversial bill
that proposes stiff penalties for gays – including death in some cases – is progressing towards becoming law.
“He [Muhame] says the bill imposing harsh penalties for homosexuality will become law when Uganda begins drilling oil and becomes less dependent on foreign donors,” says the CNN report.
The Member of Parliament behind the harsh bill, David Bahati, is quoted as saying: “We are very confident because this is a piece of legislation that is needed in this country to protect the traditional family here in Africa, and also protect the future of our children.”
The bill has provoked outrage
in several countries, including the United Kingdom.
