A Ugandan newspaper listed Tuesday 200 people it accused of being gay, a day after the president called homosexuals ‘mercenaries’ and signing one of the world’s toughest anti-gay laws.
“Uganda’s 200 top homos named,” the daily newspaper added, which listed both those who have openly declared their sexuality as well as those who had not, including gay rights activists, priests and music stars.
“In salutation to the new law, today we unleash Uganda’s top homos and their sympathisers,” the newspaper added.
