Bahati Lies 2




Remember my contention that Bahati Lies?

Of course he lies. He says that the current law in Uganda does not protect boys from sexual predators, and for that reason, he has kindly produced a law that does. In the post above,  I have shown you the law on aggravated defilement as it is current in the Republic of Uganda today. It definately deals with boys and girls. It is gender neutral, am told is the language.

But, maybe Bahati was asleep when that law was passed. He was a member of parliament in 2007 when it became law. So, maybe he doesnt remember. Forget the fact that Dr. Tamale has again and again tried to debunk this lie of Bahati and Ssempa (that one is defending the precious 'boy child') Let us say that Bahati simply, very much like a human does, he forgot, and has not had the trouble to check out the law as it is at the moment.

But wait a second. Do you want to read the law for 'aggravated defilement' as it was written? Here it is below. From the Penal Code Act, Revision

129(3)
Any person who performs a sexual act with another person who is below the age of eighteen years in any of the circumstances specified in subsection (4) commits a felony called aggravated defilement and is, on conviction by the High Court, liable to suffer death.

129(4)
The circumstances referred to in subsection (3) are as follows-
(a) where the person against whom the offence is committed is below the age of fourteen years;
(b) where the offender is infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV);
(c) Where the offender is a parent or guardian of or a person in authority over, the person against whom the offence is committed;
(d) where the victim of the offence is a person with a disability; or,
(e) where the offender is a serial offender


And, I hope you want to read the section on aggravated homosexuality as written by Bahati in the Bahati bill.

(1) A person commits the offense of aggravated homosexuality where the
(a) person against whom the offence is committed is below the age of 18 years;
(b) offender is a person living with HIV;
(c) offender is a parent or guardian of the person against whom the offence is committed;
(d) offender is a person in authority over the person against whom the offence is committed;
(e) victim of the offence is a person with disability;
(f) offender is a serial offender, or
(g) offender applies, administers or causes to be used by any man or woman any drug, matter or thing with intent to stupefy overpower him or her so as to there by  enable any person to have unlawful carnal connection with any person of the same sex,
(2) A person who commits the offence of aggravated homosexuality shall be liable on conviction to suffer death.
(3) Where a person is charged with the offence under this section, that person shall undergo a medical examination to ascertain his or her HIV status.
Do you notice any similarities? Do you notice any differences? Do you still doubt that the Rt. Honourable Bahati is consistently, consciously telling a lie when he insist that the law does not cover male children who are abused?

I am going to make some very serious conclusions. Based on the evidence above, of course.

Number 1; Mr David Bahati is very aware of the amendment to the Defilement clause of the Penal Code Act.

Number 2; While writing the 'aggravated homosexuality' section of the Bahati bill, Mr David Bahati had access to the current law on defilement, and used it as a template for his bill.

Number 3; The changes between the 'aggravated defilement' and the 'aggravated homosexuality' part of the bill shows that Mr Bahati wilfully wanted to extend the death penalty and life imprisonment to homosexuals like me who had nothing to do with sex with children. It was not a mistake. It was not a slip of the pen. It was a calculated move to extend the death penalty provisions to gay people who 'qualified' in Mr. Bahati's hate scale.

Now, those are my conclusions, according to the evidence before me.

I am quite willing to see a rebuttal to this. Even if it is from the Rt. Honourable David Bahati.

What do you have to say to this, good Christian, who is born again and does not hate homosexuals and just wants them to change?

Will someone nudge David Bahati and tell him that this challenge is out there for him to beat or not?

According to Hansard, Bahati was present in Parliament at 6:38 pm on April 18, 2007. The bill was passed at 4:46 pm that day.

Now, more evidence that the guy lies.

And, you know what, he has been saying this, with Ssempa, despite the fact that people have been pointing out the lack of truth in what he says.

So, he was actually in parliament when the bill was passed?

Power, power, power to yu.

Bahati does lie.

This song was written about apartheid, but could equally apply to you GayUganda:

The higher you build your barrier
The taller I become
The farther you take my rights away
The faster I will run
You can deny me
You can decide to turn your face away
No matter 'cause there’s

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong
Something inside so strong

The more you refuse to hear my voice
The louder I will sing
You hide behind Walls of Jericho
Your lies will come tumbling
Deny my place and time
You squander wealth that's mine
My light will shine
So brightly it will blind you
Because there’s

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong
Something inside so strong

Brothers and sisters
When they insist we’re just not good enough
Well we know better
Just look 'em in the eye and say
We’re gonna do it anyway
we’re gonna do it anyway
We're gonna do it anyway

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong
There’s something inside so strong
There's something inside so strong

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong so wrong.
