According to President Museveni, the mouth is meant for eating and not for sex. He said in his speech;
“LET ME TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO WARN OUR PEOPLE PUBLICLY ABOUT THE WRONG PRACTICES INDULGED IN AND PROMOTED BY SOME OF THE OUTSIDERS.ONE OF THEM IS WHAT THEY CALL ORAL SEX. THE MOUTH IS FOR EATING NOT FOR SEX.”
Museveni, a devout evangelical Christian, had before now said the only explanation for being gay was money, as he further gave a detailed explanation on why he believed homosexuals should be jailed for life.
“I have failed to understand that you can fail to be attracted to all these beautiful women and be attracted to a man,” the president told reporters as he signed off on controversial anti-gay legislation that includes life prison terms for repeat offenders.
“That is a really serious matter. There is something really wrong with you,” he said.
“Homosexuals are actually mercenaries. They are heterosexual people but because of money they say they are homosexuals. These are prostitutes because of money,” he said, asserting that he had taken the time to get scientific advice before signing off on the law.
“No study has shown you can be homosexual by nature,” he said. “That man can choose to love a man… is a matter of choice. After listening to the scientists, I got the facts.
“Can somebody be homosexual simply by nature? The answer is no.”
As for gay oral sex, he said the health risks were appalling.
“It is not healthy. You can contract STD [sexually transmitted diseases]. You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address. You can also contract Hepatitis B,” he said.
