On the very day that the President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, assented to the Anti-homosexuality Bill, the publishers, staff and editors of Red pepper Tabloid, Uganda, saw fit, yet again, to publish the faces and names of 200 alleged lesbians, gays and transgender individuals, including those perceived as such. In effect screaming for mob lynching! We are now turning the tables so that should they ever escape Uganda, we will effect an international manhunt. I look forward to the day when their own President turns on them and they in fact do need to run. Its imminent and they have burnt their international bridge. We will not take pity on persecutors.

Red Pepper has outed gays, with the specific purpose of inciting the inevitable witch hunts and persecution of LGBT Ugandans. It is clear to all that the Tabloid, widely read in Uganda, is in on the bandwagon, exploiting the dire circumstances of Ugandan gays, participating in the heightened terror which has befallen them since the enactment of the legislation, and hence is complicit in persecutory actions.
Many Ugandans whose faces are in this magazine, have had to run for cover and are currently hiding out, in terror, for fear of being recognized on the streets. They are unable to work, roam from lodging to lodging, seeking safe housing, and are unable to access jobs, family or government help, with many now reaching out to my Rescue Fund for the very basic such as money for food.
What they have now done is set themselves up for more than crimes against humanity through their intent to persecute, but also lined themselves up for defamation charges, because according to the new law, calling someone “homo” is calling them a criminal under the new law. Unlike the old penal code, the new law specifically defines homosexuality as a crime. Yet they have made such accusation, without a single one of those persons being tried for homosexuality.
What the bold Red Pepper connivers do not realize is that we in the West are suing this to make a case against them. They are fully aware that publishing such pictures will cause assault, lynchings, mob (in)-justice and even murder. They may as well strike the blow with their individual hands. Allow me to name those individuals, who previously exposed here on OBLOGDEE suggesting that they be classified as International Wanted Criminals, denied entry to our countries, with their children banned from our Universities and their bank accounts frozen.
