KAMPALA, Uganda--A Ugandan newspaper listed Tuesday 200 people it accused of being gay, a day after the president called homosexuals 'mercenaries' and signed one of the world's toughest anti-gay laws.
"Exposed!" the headline of the Red Pepper tabloid read, beneath photographs of Ugandans it said were gay, reporting on lurid stories of alleged homosexual actions. "Uganda's 200 top homos named."
On Monday, President Yoweri Museveni signed a bill that holds that repeat homosexuals should be jailed for life, outlaws promotion of homosexuality and requires the denunciation of gays.
Museveni said he could not understand how one could "fail to be attracted to all these beautiful women and be attracted to a man" instead and described in graphic details his particular revulsion to oral sex.
