HOMOSEXUALS SACRIFICED FOR POLITICAL AMBITION IN UGANDA: A STATEMENT FROM FREEDOM AND ROAM UGANDA [FARUG]
Call to action
In coming days many LGBTI persons will be assaulted, arrested and detained. As of yesterday, 25thFebruary; a gay couple was attacked and one of them killed while the other is in critical condition in hospital. Many have been thrown out of their houses by landlords and yet others will continue to lose their jobs. In the midst of all this we request the general public to desist from radical and irrational acts of violence towards suspected LGBTI persons. We demand that security agencies including the police and prisons endeavor to investigate any cases of violence perpetrated against LGBT persons and refrain from making arrests based on meagre hearsay and or suspicion. Uganda during the Universal Periodic Review in 2012 in Geneva committed to:
- ? Investigate and prosecute intimidation and attacks on LGBTI community members and activists.
- ? Investigate thoroughly and sanction accordingly violence against LGBTI persons including gay rights activist.
- ? Take immediate and concrete steps to stop discrimination and assault against LGBTI persons. Media organizations should also refrain from sensational reporting which is fuelling hatred and attacks on persons suspected to be homosexuals.
We demand that donors channel funds to Civil Society Organizations carrying out, Social, Economic and human rights work rather than to a corrupt institution that has no remorse in not protecting its citizens. It is very unfortunate that we have to make such a call but Uganda should be isolated to prevent this passing of laws with impunity from spreading across the continent. This is very crucial to protect other countries in Africa. Finally we urge the international community to continue supporting the LBTI community, morally, financial and technically in response to security treats and human rights violations.
