Not for the faint hearted.
A mind is a beautiful thing to waste. Ignorant Africans, Sigh.
Also found this e-mail on Black Looks (Best use of theme Naija Blog Awards). It is being sent round to intimidate supposedly gay Ugandans. A country being crippled by poverty, AIDS, and lacks the basic amenities is busy funding a "National Anti- Homosexual Task force"
Dear Mr. Semakula Zilaba,
You will understandably be surprised both about the content of this e-mail and by the its having finally arrived into your inbox. I will not go into any niceties because I dont have time for anything like that and I think people like you do not deserve them.
You will get to know who we work for ,what I do and what we want from you during the course of this e-mail. You are well aware of the recent developments in Uganda regarding the issue of homosexuality, Gays, lesbians and anything that people like you would like to call yourselves. I am part of an organisation that has been formed to not only respond to the threat posed by people of whom you are a part but also to see to it that people like you are dealt with a way that prevents your numbers from multiplying to stain this beautiful country.
We recently got your contacts from some of our people working from the inside of the organisations that you homosexuals have set up and we have decided that we will make you and offer . We would like to let you know that …..we know you very well, and we know a lot about you! So do not try to play any silly tricks as we are very serious with this assignment and any time wasting and attempts to be smart by you will be severely punished.
What do we know about you?
You are about 34 years old, studied in King’s college then Namilyango college. You have a woman with whom you have a child. This woman is called Namubiru Siyada working with State House.
Your father is a one Mr Serugoti Michael who used to work with Bakharesa Company limited in Kampala but he disappeared off our radar . We shall find him though.
You work for an organisation within Makerere University called the Computer Institute and you also do part time work as at Synoviate at Nakasero. Most friday evenings you are seen heading to that place at around 9 pm.
We could tell you more about where you live and what your lifestyle is like but we trust that you dont doubt we know all that too and so for now we shall go straight to why we have written this letter to you.
We have been tasked with the job of stopping the spread of homosexuality and identifying and dealing with all stubborn homosexuals and sexual deviants in Uganda.
We work with many organisations to identify people like you and have contacts even within organisations like yours (SMUG) that inform us of your acitivities.
We have zeroed in on you as one of those hard core homosexuals (your family status not withstanding) that we could use as an example to the rest and this is our offer to you
1)You should provide us with a list of all the homosexuals you know who are within kampala and Jinja districts whom you have come into contact with. We are aware you have not been very actively involved in sex with fellow men over the past three years but we know you are aware of those who engage in these acts
2)You should also write a letter denouncing homosexulaity just as one of your colleagues (George Oundo) recently did, this we shall use as evidence that we are making headway in our fight against homosexuality in this country.
By the way you should be aware that people like George Oundo who have renounced that practice are some of those with whom we are working to tackle this cancer and we are making great progress.
Some of your friends as you might or might not know are already in our custody and what will determine whether they will ever be seen again will be there “cooperation ” with our boys.
You are still out there because we are aware of some of the loose but significant connections you have to General Kale Kayihura and to some army elements too.
However you should know that in due time, these will not stop us from achieving our aims too.
For now that is all we require of you.
Failure to cooperate with us……
1)We shall expose you first to your employers then to your family and all your friends too.
2)we shall make sure (your employer) ,knows about your horrible habits and you know what has happened to fellow homosexuals who were working at your place of work. You are aware of the case of Mr. Lutakoome ….do you know why he was sacked from Makerere and now he cannot get any job as within Kampala? It is because he refused to cooperate with us.
We shall give you the same treatment if you too dont cooperate fully with us.
3)You will be exposed to all those in your neighbourhood and whereever else you attempt to move too we shall do the same again.
You already know that most of your neighbours are suspicious of you anyway since they hardly ever see you with a woman and yet your are a well off man!
That is just the tip of the iceberg for what we plan for you in case you dont cooperate.
We have your celphone contcat and we shall get in touch with you soon
So think about our offer to you and get back to us within 1 month.
National Anti- Homosexual Taskforce.
Sigh Sigh Sigh
Africa my Africa
Oooh heard bout thisReplyDelete
well not this, the one wer they lynch em n things
very very controversial
in my opinion if ur country has set out laws against sm, if its a constitutional law, then it'll be illegal to be gay
n if u want to so bad go to another country
na wa 4 u oh DevineReplyDelete
lol, a friend n i had a long arguement bout itReplyDelete
if they r being homophoebic thats diff, but the way i was informed bout it, it sounds like they hv sm similar to sharia, if thts the case, then just respect urselves n commot from the country, see the letter, like its funny, but they actually kill these ppl :(
did you not watch the video Devine? if that's not homophobic I dont know what is.....ReplyDelete
have you seen the other videos tho? i meant if they are just being homophobic independent of their set laws, then they waaay outta line, but if they as a country have a law against it, then they can imprison those who are gay cus it is against the lawReplyDelete
I couldn't finish watching the video, one question Atala asked though, how did he know these things about gays?ReplyDelete
On the issue though, if it is against the law then the govt is mandated to enforce it. The campaign should be to change the law and not to hate the haters, then you have become like them.
Well said, Myne and DevineReplyDelete
Good point. If there is a law against it, then it is illegal.ReplyDelete
But even then, whose business is it if indeed, one man wants to eat the poo-poo of another?
This video is sooo funny...
I was here and I read this..ReplyDelete
But I have to come back and do a proper comment.
Do you guys know that Nigeria has a similar stand towards homosexuality like Uganda. According to unreleased statistics collated in research funded by DFID and the likes...here in Lagos 3 outta 5 men are closet homosexuals. They marry, have kids and claim heterosexual to the public. We really need a policy change. Cause the health-risk they pose to themselves and their wives is just unimaginable.ReplyDelete
