Uganda stabbing victim Steven Kabuye blames LGBTQ+ attacks on politicians


Kabuye, who is the executive director of the advocacy group Colored Voice Truth to LGBTQ was left in a critical condition in hospital after he was “stabbed to near death” last week by two men just meters outside of his home. Graphic video footage uploaded to Kabuye’s X account shows him lying on the ground with his arm sliced open and a knife sticking into his stomach. It is the latest attack on a member of Uganda’s LGBTQ+ community following the introduction of the country’s widely condemned Anti-Homosexuality Act last year. The act, signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni, imposes the death penalty for what it calls “aggravated homosexuality”, which includes sexual activity with disabled people and people who are HIV positive.
