MP proposes that homosexuals are castrated
Members of Parliament Tuesday commenced debating the Anti-Homosexuality Bill which when passed will formulate a stringent law that thwarts the promotion and spread the acts of same sex relations.
Sarah Opendi, the Woman Member of Parliament for Tororo District, has proposed that homosexuals recruiting children into the vice should be castrated because life imprisonment as proposed in the draft Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2023 is not enough.
“Where somebody has got your child into homosexuality even life imprisonment is not adequate. The amendment I am proposing is that such a person should be castrated madam speaker,” Opendi said.

Adding: “Homosexuality has no essence but rather a mere romantic and sexual attraction to people of the same sex,”
Musa Francis Ecweru, Minister of State for Works and Transport (Works), explained that homosexuality is a threat to the human race.
“What we are discussing is the preservation of the human race. There are consequences but the consequences that are negative shall be temporal,” he said.
“For anybody who can stand here and tell us that it is a human right to destroy people’s anuses, that person is evil hell belongs to that person. Those who believe in it let them have it in their countries,” Ecweru said.
