Juju the ally: Malema and EFF come to defence of Uganda’s LGBTQI+ community


Scores of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members marched to the Ugandan high commission in Pretoria on Tuesday to protest against the East African country’s bill which criminalises those that identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQI+). The Ugandan parliament has already passed the anti-homosexuality bill, which makes homosexual acts punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The bill is yet to be signed into law by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
