Sironko- President Museveni has asked the Church and civil society to support government in the fight against homosexuality, saying the vice has become a danger among the young generation.

The President also requested the clergy to continue preaching against the increasing moral degeneration, saying this has led to the rise of HIV/Aids epidemic among the youth.

Mr Museveni made the calls in a speech read for him by the Minister of Security, Mr Muruli Mukasa, at the consecration of North Mbale Diocese Bishop Samuel Gidudu at the weekend.
