Department of Un-necessary Censorship.


Apparently, publishing this injures the reputation of the president of the republic. Here is the offending cartoon.


Three executives on the Ugandan bimonthly magazine The Independent were interrogated by police for four hours because they published an allegedly seditious cartoon that was critical of the president, Yoweri Museveni (see it here). They must return for further questioning at the weekend.



Why should this appear here?

Well, I have gotten interested in the issue of ‘rights’. Its easy. You have an excuse to deny one person human rights, yu get the excuse to deny another one. So, as homosexuals seem to have no rights to talk, why not gang up with other people when their right to express themselves is threatened? Maybe they will remember our support in time of need...!
