RUB A DUB DUB: Are unprincipled and crafty fellows in Uganda being ¨turned out/away¨ by President Museveni?

The President of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

Is President Yoweri Museveni CLEANING HOUSE in UGANDA?

Rub a dub dub,
Three men in a tub,
And who do you think they be?
The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick maker.
Turn them out, knaves all three.

The Butcher:

David Bahati’s Plan for Genocide

MP David Bahati, Budding Butcher and author of the ¨Kill The Gays¨ Bill before the Parliament of Uganda.

Bahati said ‘If you come here, you’ll see homosexuals from Europe and America are luring our children into homosexuality by distributing cell phones and iPods and things like this,’” Sharlet recounts. “And he said, ‘And I can explain to you what I really want to do.’”

Sharlet accompanied Bahati to a restaurant, and later to his home, where Bahati told Sharlet that he wanted “to kill every last gay person.” HERE

The Baker:

MP James Nsaba Buturo, Money scandal pops up at Ethics Ministry

Minister of Ethics and Integrity, ¨Cooking the Books?¨ MP James Nsaba Buturo.

Senior officials at the directorate of Ethics and Integrity spend public money without accountability, an audit brief has revealed. The officials, whose job is to champion of ethics and integrity in the country, stealthily banked office imprest into their personal accounts.

The officials also spent Shs672.8 million between April and June in marathon workshops to exhaust the budget before the end of last financial year on June 30.

The money was drawn from Bank of Uganda without approval from the accounting officer, documents reveal.

Dr James Nsaba Buturo, the Ethics and Integrity Minister whose docket is to supervise the directorate, yesterday confirmed there were accountability issues in his backyard. HERE

UPDATE: Buturo's Last Grasp at Hate

Dr. James Nsaba Buturo, Uganda's Minister for Ethics and Integrity, was recently defeated in primary elections. Buturo was one of the key players in promoting the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of 2009 which included death penalty provisions. In forcing his theocratic agenda on Uganda, Buturo has often blurred the lines between church and state. In a last grasp at hate before he leaves office, Buturo is pushing an anti-pornography law targeting homosexuals HERE

The Candlestick Maker:

Anglican Archbishop Henry Orombi, ¨From pulpits, that seem holy, despite the words of hate and venom pouring out of the mouths of the preachers...¨

Anglican Archbishop of Uganda, Henry ¨Candlestick Maker¨ Orombi

¨millions have died and been excluded in the name of Christianity¨

·Archbishop Henry Orombi/Uganda, pushing for exclusion of LGBT Anglicans/others while pandering to ´instruments¨ of deadly bigotry at The African Anglican Bishops Conference, Entebbe, Uganda

¨The meeting of African Bishops in Entebbe, Uganda has not surprisingly, been used to reaffirm the church’s homophobic stance. The bishops spoke about “African Values” and “alien beliefs”. Since the rights of LGBTI people are being denied this implies that the notion of ‘human rights’ is not part of our values and beliefs. The hatred expressed through homophobia and criminalisation also implies that the idea of people’s humanity is not part of our values and beliefs... HERE

·Bishop condemns corruption in Anglican Church of Uganda

The retired Bishop of South Rwenzori Diocese, the Rt. Rev. Zebedee Masereka, has lashed out at the Anglican community in Uganda, saying it is riddled with corruption.Bishop condemns corruption in churches... HERE

·Ugandan Bishop excommunicated by Archbishop Orombi at the Anglican Church of Uganda for a ministry dedicated to preventing LGBT outcasting, suicide and murder

Bishop Christoper Ssenyonjo: "Almighty God, we believe that in Christ there is no discrimination against race, colour, gender or LGBT people. We pray that you guide us with your Holy Spirit so that all hate campaigns including those against LGBT people may be transformed into peace, justice and reconciliation. Amen." HERE
