Ugandan newspaper names 200 homos

Just a day after the Ugandan President signed the anti-gay bill into law, the Red Pepper tabloid has published a list of 200 people it accused of being gay and called for them to be executed.

The daily newspaper published the names and some pictures of men and women it claims are homos in a front-page under the headline: "Exposed!".

Amongst those listed include Ugandan gay activist Pepe Julian Onziema, Jacqueline Kasha - a well known lesbian activist, hip hop artist as well as a Catholic priest.

In 2011, prominent Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato was brutally murdered at his home after a different newspaper splashed photos, names and addresses of gay people on its front page along with a yellow banner reading "Hang Them".

President Yoweri Museveni said he could not understand how one could fail to be attracted to all those beautiful women and be attracted to a man.

Under Uganda's new-anti-gay law, gay s3x is punishable by life imprisonment.

Museveni earlier this month also signed into law anti-pornography and dress code legislation which outlaws "provocative" clothing.
