Malema challenges Uganda`s law


South Africa’s Opposition Party Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema found himself on the receiving end from majority of netizens over his stance on (LGBTQ) community in Uganda.

Ugandan Members of Parliament recently passed a law that criminalises and imposes harsh punitive measures for citizens who will be found to be subscribing to LGBTQ community. If the Bill is signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni, those found on the offensive side will be liable to up to 10 years in jail.

As this move was celebrated by majority Ugandan leaders save for human rights activists like Stella Nyanzi who is in exile after falling out with Museveni, Malema took a stance backing the latter who oppose the bill. Julius Malema blasts Uganda over anti-LGBTQ law In his Tweet of Tuesday, April 4, Malema announced that he would lead a picketing session to Uganda’s High Commission in South Africa in protest against the law. “We are here to send our strong message against Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill,” read a tweet by Malema.
