On Aug 15, 2016 Gay Star News reported: He also claims the government is buying a machine from South Korea to spy on gay men and that school teachers are being paid to ‘recruit’ students
Uganda’s homophobic Minister Of Ethics claims gay people want to rape him.
And it’s not the only bizarre claim made by Father Simon Lokodo, who quit his job as a priest after being made Uganda’s Minister of Ethics and Integrity in 2011.
He used an interview today to make a string of anti-gay claims, including saying one school principal is storing his pupil’s semen in test tubes.
And he alleges Ugandan children are being offered bribes to make them gay, with the ‘west’ providing the funds.
The interview is on homophobic website Red Pepper. It refers to gay people as ‘shameless homos’ and ‘bum-drillers’ in the article.
Lokodo, meanwhile, is dubbed in the interview an ‘amiable man of God’.
Lokodo tells Red Pepper: ‘My sources have revealed to me that the western world has pumped a lot of money in the homosexuality spread campaign. They want to finish off our beautiful culture.
‘Recruits are welcomed with huge chunks of money. The boys and girls who have been planted here to recruit our children earn Shs500,000 [$148/€133] per person.’
‘The boy is wearing three pampers. His anus was shattered beyond repair’
He says at a school in Eastern Uganda: ‘The headmaster there is recruiting all his students. A complaint is before me here indicating that this head teacher masturbates boys’ sperms and keeps them in test tubes. We are going to arrest him and the school will be closed immediately.’
He also reinforces the myth that anal sex means gay men have to wear diapers.
‘Just yesterday a son of one of the richest Ugandans came here and confessed. The boy is wearing three pampers. His anus was shattered beyond repair. He cannot sit with ease. He is suffering and wallowing in pain.
‘When the boy undressed before me, pus was oozing from his rear.’
But he indicated the young man may be punished for having gay sex.
‘Very many have come here denouncing the act. But of course I don’t offer blanket pardon. They must face the law because homosexuality is illegal here,’ Lokodo added.
He also boasted about the police raid on Uganda’s Mr and Miss Pride pageant on 4 August which attracted headlines and criticism around the world.
‘Upon getting intelligence that these shameless idiots were planning a march in Kampala, I reached out to police for personnel and immediately we raided them. We found them in the middle of the meeting planning to sin. We immediately stopped them and dispersed the meeting.’
