Ugandan President’s visit to London hit by LGBT rights protest
LGBT campaigners have staged a protest over the President of Uganda’s visit to London.
President Yoweri Museveni arrived in the capital yesterday and has met with UK ministers, officials and corporate executives as part of a Pro-Ugandan business forum hosted by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
On Wednesday evening, he gave a speech at a venue in Buckingham Gate, Westminster.
A protest, organised by the African LGBT group Out and Proud, with the support of Stop AIDS and the Peter Tatchell Foundation, was held outside the building.
The UK Government said that none of its aid goes directly to the Ugandan Government.
