The UK Government plays host to Ugandan President on same day anti-gay trial begins

UK Government hosts Ugandan President for a Buisness Forum as the first anti-gay trial begins...

The trial of Kim Mukisa and Jackson Mukasa is the first under the new legislation. The couple were arrested in January fleeing a lynch mob, according to human rights groups.

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni, who believes gay people are “disgusting”, has spoken at a Business Forum hosted by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) at Lancaster House in London.

Around a dozen gay rights activists, led by veteran campaign Peter Tatchell, held a protest outside the forum.

 @David_Cameron condemns homophobia worldwide. Why did @foreignoffice host today's UK-Uganda Business Summit with anti-gay tyrant ?

“Gay people are not the cause of Uganda’s problems," Tatchell said. "The government of Uganda should fight poverty and HIV, not gay people."
