LGBTQ+ sanctions: ‘I don’t want to go to America’ – Uganda’s president

The president of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, has criticized the United States government about the matter of same-sex marriage being illegal in his East African country.

Speaking on December 10, 2023, during a National Thanksgiving celebration, Museveni declared that it was a waste of time for “foreigners” to put pressure or threaten with sanctions against Ugandans.

“Some of the foreigners are wasting their time, they try to put pressure on us. If you don’t do this, we shall not allow you to go to America, I do not want to go to America.

“I go to America as a favour to the Americans that I have come to visit you, because here, what am I missing here (in Uganda)?” he added.

His remarks came just a few days after the United States formally declared that prominent Ugandan politicians at the center of a law that was passed and approved by the president earlier this year would not be allowed to travel.

In the name of human rights, Museveni has often criticized the West for attempting to force its views on same-sex marriage and orientation on others.
