Dr. Nsaba-Buturo that is. Some quotes over the last few years from the gentleman.
“Buturo said that the law would be changed to increase the number of prosecutions.
"It is true that the law on homosexuality is not comprehensive and that the criminals just walk away and police find it difficult to prosecute," he said. "We need to address this gap."
"We want it to become law in that if someone is a homosexual or confesses to being a gay or lesbian, then he is a criminal," he added.
“He said homosexuality – not war, famine, poverty and disease as many would like “us” to believe – is threatening the stability and prosperity of Uganda. “It is a mental disease and I believe people can change,” Dr Buturo added.
““We hear that some students in our schools have been lured into homosexuality. I appeal to the investigative arms of the government to quickly compile reports of such students and their schools so that tough action is taken against them,” he said.
Actually, the possible quotes are too many. Here is the new song.
Don’t harass homos – Buturo

By Vision Reporter
HOMOSEXUALS should not be discriminated against, ethics and integrity minister James Nsaba buturo has said.
buturo, who has been a strong critic of homosexuals, said although the Government does not agree with their lifestyle, they should not be harassed.
He said they should instead be accorded equal treatment just like any other Ugandans.
“They (homosexuals) say they are being harassed and discriminated against. This is not true. No one should discriminate against a sick person. They are entitled to getting drugs like all Ugandans,” buturo said.
buturo added: “They are our people who have unfortunately decided to take a different lifestyle.
They need counselling and help. As a Government, we pledge not to leave any body behind, especially when it comes to accessing HIV/AIDS drugs.”
buturo was speaking at a workshop for members of Parliament and civil society organisations on the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Draft Bill, 2008 at the Parliament.
The Bill prohibits any person from being denied employment, transfer or promotion on grounds of their HIV status.
Is it hypocrisy or not? The very person who is harassing us apparently is advocating not harassing us. So?????
I admit to being a little bit confused. Though the confusion is very likely in my mind and not his. Read the fine print. Homosexuals will get the drugs, but not lessons in HIV prevention....
