The Pan-African Pyramid (PAP) Founding Speaker and Chairman Andrew Irumba Katusabe Ateenyi yesterday, Monday, 24th April 2023 paid a courtesy visit to the Speaker of Parliament of the Republic of Uganda, Rt Hon Anita Annet Among Magogo.
The intention of the visit was to officially thank her and the entire parliament for passing the Anti-homosexuality Bill 2023, aimed at curbing the spread of LGBTQ vice in Uganda and Africa in general.
“Yesterday Monday, I and my team under The Pan-African Pyramid made a courtesy visit to the Speaker of Parliament of Uganda the Rt. Hon Anita Annet Among Magogo to thank her and the parliament for passing the Anti-homosexuality Bill 2023. We also encouraged her to go ahead and pass it when it’s returned for amendment. I assured her of our support as a Pan-African Organization with membership not only in Uganda, but Africa and across the globe. On behalf of Pan-Africanists across the globe, we’re behind any efforts aimed at the protection of African values and traditions as a people. Africa will never exchange its values, cultures and traditions for foreign aid/money,” Irumba posted on his social media on Tuesday evening.
Irumba, in the company of his personal assistant Brian Bariyo reached at Parliament at 10 am and headed straight to Speaker’s chambers, and were received by her public relations staff including Rajab Kaaya, and Sabiti Joseph among others.

In the 30-minute closed-door meeting, comrade Irumba revealed to Hon Among how the LGBTQ community are hell-bent on creating a nation within nations of their own. He revealed how LGBTQ have since spotted South Africa as their ‘tower centre’ for Africa where they coordinate and fund their heinous activities.
Out of 54 countries in Africa, only five (5) (South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Lesotho, and the Republic of Seychelles) have laws that decriminalize homosexuality. In 2006, South Africa became the first African country to de-criminalize homosexuality. 72 out of 195 countries in the world still criminalize homosexuality. In fact, in Iran, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen, homosexuality is still punishable by death under Sharia law. The same applies in parts of Somalia and Northern Nigeria. In Syria and Iraq, the death penalty against homosexuals is even carried out by non-state actors, including the Islamic State.
America rumoured to be the most democratic in the world, where the Anti-sodomy laws were ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2003, those same laws are still on the books in 14 states: Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas.
This is because some still sane conservative state legislators refused to repeal the laws, and in some cases, police occasionally still arrest suspects based on the same laws. In the same Americas and the Caribbean, countries like Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, same-sex relations are still variously criminalized under laws covering Sodomy, buggery, and “acts against nature”. The United States and Europe are consistent trade partners with Saudi Arabia, one of the sworn objectors of homosexuality.
Meeting NRM caucus last week, President Yoweri Museveni made it clear that he supports the Bill against LGBTQ evil groups and sent it back to parliament to make it even tougher.
“Before that is done, we also agree that the bill will be returned in order to facilitate the reinforcement and the strengthening of some provisions in line with our best practices,” he said.
