“Daddy, I am homosexual…”: Ugandan president’s daughter reveals on live radio show (READ)


by Akan Ido

In a somewhat bizarre twist, the daughter of Uganda’s anti-gay president Yoweri Museveni has revealed that she is homosexual.

Diana Kamuntu, the president’s daughter made the startling revelation on a live radio interview with popular host James Kasirivu.

She restated her unconditional love for Museveni but expressed her opposition to the recently passed anti-gay law passed by her father in the East African country.

Several Western countries have, however, labelled the law as draconian threatening cessation of aid to Uganda.

“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,” said Kamuntu.

“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 adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.

The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.

The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.

In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.

As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni could be reached for comment.

    @Sidney: Please stop insulting Africa, if you have anything to say, make your statement, but please, stop insulting us. Just look at what you are saying, Wow! I can understand your dialogues, but insulting Africa? Well, you have shown what or who you are, just remember that you will never ever be an African, just remain what you are.

  • Daddy should read some educative scientific book. For example, on homosexuality in the animal kingdom. IGNORANCE is the worst enemy of humankind.

    ok, im very disappointed in the administarion of this site. How can you say such false things about a married woman with children? Incidentally her last name ‘Kamuntu’ is actually her husband`s name. Your website is a joke and should be pulled down for massively misinforming the world.
