Coming home today, a friend told me of a curious story. He had got a call from George Oundo, aka Georgina. Guy wanted money- if he was not to ‘out’ him.

The friend cursed Georgina away.

And, on returning home from work, he found his domestic help with a strange story. The help was visited by Red Pepper people. They know he has a story about his boss, he was informed. And they were ready to pay well for the story. Which story? The boss’s (homo)sexual escapades.

Georgina, good Christian as he is, (he says he is doing the outing etc for God and Country), has a lucrative side line. Blackmail.

He has blackmailed many. And continues- I have failed to figure out what he is after.

But, besides the blackmail, there is a lot of fear.

Remember the guys in Mbale? The couple that was arrested for being amorous. They are still in jail. On remand, almost a month since the arrests. There is literally no case against them. But public opinion, and politics.

There is a sadder case in Mukono. A seventeen year old was sentenced to life imprisonment, because he had gay sex. Life imprisonment in Uganda means exactly that. No parole. No time out. Life in prison. The boy can only appeal that sentence.

There is another case, in Entebbe. And others.

Suddenly, prison is becoming something that anyone suspected of being gay gets rail roaded to. Doesn’t matter that you may not be gay. Or you may not be guilty. Fact is, us seasoned gay people are kind of too suspicious to be caught in the act. But damn!

I am just thinking of Stephen Langa, that nice Christian man, doing his round on the fm stations, complaining that homosexuals were not being arrested. Well, we are being arrested. And sentenced, to life in prison.

Guy visited me yesterday. His name, his pic was published. He cannot sleep at his house. His LC chairman advised him that residents will lynch him. And a friend that was staying at his house was beaten up. Because of suspicion that he is gay.

He was suicidal. Where is this going to end?

Father Musaala, his career is in tatters. Until he can ‘prove’ that he is not homosexual. His rivals must be happy about that- they did destroy this pretender to the love of god, didn’t they? 

By the way, in the same red rug issue in which people were outed was a pornographic 'confession' from dear Georgina. He detailed how he was a wife to a 'popular priest' for over a year, for some money... Didnt require an Einstein to figure out who the 'popular priest' was supposed to be.

All lovers of homosexuals, (or any who can pretend) have to affirm their heterosexuality. Bishop Ssenyonjo, that venerable granddad has to begin his defence of us by asserting that he is not gay. He must be, after all, Georgina ‘outed’ him.

But the one thing which amused me about this hysteria was the Pastor Kayanja saga. Apparently, his pastor rivals could not get someone like Georgina to accuse him. So, they are offering money for the confessions. Kayanja is a very influential man. Politically very well connected (which in a way makes him vulnerable!). He found the need to make the accusations New Vision headlines. And then to go to Red Pepper, of all papers! Apparently, his detractors complain that he is not anti-gay enough. That is why they say he must be gay, because he is not anti-gay enough. (The headline in the red rug was Pastor Kayanja reveals his homo history! but like much that that rug writes about, the story was miles away from the headlines.  Poor Kayanja!)

I swear, I am not lying. Most of these things are documented, by the Red Pepper, and its sister anti-gay publication, the New Vision.

Actually, it is early days.

Uganda has been homophobic. But not above many other countries in Africa. What started as an anti-gay, Christian seminar to deal with the homosexual agenda has morphed into some tears of pain for many of us. And it is not yet finished.

Where will it end?

It was actually on their web-site, though they appear to have taken it down. However, anyone interested in Red Pepper's general tenor could read this, from March:

The Oundo story read like a soft porn film script; I doubt if many other countries would allow that kind of sordid, lurid fantasy on their pages. But this, of course, is Red Pepper's stock-in-trade.

Oundo, if there was any truth in the story, basically described his agreement to offer sex for money. A prostitute, in other words.

And now he is into blackmail. What a charmer. The Christians, quite frankly, are welcome to him. I doubt if anyone else would want to go near, even with the proverbial 10 foot barge pole.

1. Oundo's agenda is something worth investigating.
2. If you put links to the stories of the boy in Mukono and the man in Entebbe, you will portray the truth that they are accused of raping young boys, not just because they are gay. Not just accused, but caught redhanded.
3. I also think it was wrong to arrest the Mbale couple. the police was probably overzealous because the community clamoured for a reaction to their blatant display.
4. Poor Musaala
5. As for Kayanja, I think he set it all up, for reasons best known to him. We watch and pray.

6. If it were true that anybody suspected to be gay was being thrown into jail, you would not be in the comfort of your home because there are people who know your leanings and yet do not try to 'railroad' you to prison.
7. Red pepper editors are perverts of the lowest variety.
8. Relax

Hi Kara,

very funny, yeah.

Relax, because I am immune to the general atmosphere of disconfort?

Relax, because I live in some different country?

Relax, because, when it happens to me it will not be so terrible? Or, because when it happens to me it will be deserved?


Very funny indeed. Thanks for that advice.

Kara said...

Relax because nobody is really, seriously, honestly after you. Yes, they may rile and shout and make laws, but unless you're planning to give us indecent exposure to your private life, or rape someone's son, nobody is going to arrest you.

gayuganda said...

Thanks for the clarification.

Relax, because Kara believes that I will be safe. Because, despite all the evidence, its all a figment of my mind.


I am speechles.

In Luke 17 in the New Testament, Jesus said that one of the big "signs" that will happen shortly before His return to earth as Judge will be a repeat of the "days of Lot" (see Genesis 19 for details). So gays are actually helping to fulfill this same worldwide "sign" (and making the Bible even more believable!) and thus hurrying up the return of the Judge! They are accomplishing what all of the Bible-thumpers couldn't accomplish! Gays couldn't have accomplished this by just coming out of closets into bedrooms. Instead, they invented new architecture - you know, closets opening on to Main Streets where little kids would be able to watch naked men having sex with each other at festivals in places like San Francisco (where their underground saint - San Andreas - may soon get a big jolt out of what's going on over his head!). Thanks, gays, for figuring out how to bring back our resurrected Saviour even quicker!

Thanks Anon,

at least you appreciate us for something positive!

Y'know, I was just reading in the news today... about the Next Big Thing from Hollywood: 3D cinema. Stand by for the next set of over-hyped blockbuster extravaganzas chock-full of over-done special effects and not much else...

Oops. Sorry, "Anon". I can't think why your response made me think of overblown fictional entertainment... I'll try not to nod off or let my mind wander next time...

Interesting comment, "Anon". Thanks for sharing.

But: homosexuality is TOTALLY normal. Just not very common.

And - "repent"? Well: you are entitled to your Christian beliefs. But you have no right to impose them on others, or to expect them to be accepted by others.

Hi George Oundo,

sorry, I hadnt realised that you had graced this blog. Not until I read this comment, and some others.

You are welcome. But one thing please, dont put people's names here. I know you are going around 'outing' people as and when you like, but you will not do it here. For that reason, I am deleting your comment above...

Err, I will not delete all of it. Just because I love you so much, I am pasting below your comment, sans the offending names...
