Besigye wife slams Museveni over anti-homosexuality bill



Hon Winnie Byanyima the Executive Director of UNAIDS and an Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations has come out to condemn Gen Museveni’s move of signing the Anti homosexuality bill in to law.

The former Mbarara MP has cited the move as a deliberate effort to violate the rights of Ugandans who are transgender or gay.

Byanyima also says the move will definitely have severe financial implications especially on Aid that comes to Uganda. She says such a law gets in to the way of people accessing life health saving services.

She adds that this law undermines the HIV response in Uganda because people living with HIV who also happen to be gay or transgender will be further be discriminated pushing them away from services that could save their lives.

“We cannot end AIDS unless every one can be reached by services for prevention and treatment,” Byanyima said in an interview with sky news
