Diana Kamuntu, is the daughter of Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni. Just last week, the Ugandan President signed a law which imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts. The move has been condemned from around the world and Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations is in jeopardy because of the law.
Diana, the Ugandan President’s daughter, made a startling revelation yesterday, during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda. Diana admitted that she was gay, and that she is revealing the fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.
She further emphasised that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it. Hear her:
“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be. Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me.”
The radio host, James Kasirivu was obviously in shock, and could not get words out of his mouth.The live radio show was shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.
