Earlier this week, it was reported that a one Wilson Kizito flee the country after he found out that Police in Uganda and the Military where looking for him everywhere.

It had turned out and become a public talk that Kizito had become a bisexual starting from his High School up to when he joined higher institution of learning.

It was silent for a long time until in 2017 when Kizito told his cancellor how he has been attracted to fellow men and cannot change it in any way. According to close sources, Kizito has always been in and out of Police Cells until February when he decided to flee the country by the help of his closest friends.

According to sources, Kizito is seeking asylum in abroad in and he fears coming to Uganda because the country is against LGBTs and the rate at which they are attacked an injured when they make public appearances is high. 

Kizito’s demise comes in a wee of events where the LGBT society is facing not only suppression from government but also from society.

Religious and community leaders have continued to denounce LGBT with recently the minister for ethics and integrity Fr Simon Lukodo attempted to halt a popular Nyege Nyege over alleged LGBT links. All that awaits for Kizito in her Christian family lays in doubt .

 Discrimination

In Uganda, homophobia has been widespread since the prohibition of homosexuality in the 1950s. But it wasn’t until February that president Yoweri Museveni signed a law that not only outlawed homosexual acts, but also compelled citizens to report suspected homosexual activity to the police, triggering increased levels of prejudice, violence and discrimination against the gay community.
