Diana Kamuntu who is the daughter of Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni has announced that she is homosexual as she is also protesting the anti-gay law her father had signed into law just few days ago. She made this revelation during a radio talk show in Mbarara, Western Uganda.
Diana revealed that she loves her father so much but she does not support Uganda’s anti-gay law which she has vowed to fight.
“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,”
“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu said as she appeared to nearly break down in tears while on air.
The host of the radio show, James Kasirivu appeared to be in shock as he became mute.
The live broadcast was shortened and put off air after some commercials were repeated for a few hours.
On Monday, the President of Uganda signed a law which imposes tough punitive measures for homosexual acts.
