ACCORDING TO OFFICER MUKO MOSES BYANSI, HIS STATEMENT ON THE CASE OF PROCURING HOMOSEXUALITY IN UGANDA
In his statement (Moses Byansi) says “I am tired of arresting Ugandans that are practicing their human rights.”
On 5th June I was signed on a duty of tracking down Mr Mutagubya Samuel who was living in Makindye, this was alleged of having practiced homosexuality. This took me days to study and investigate the suspect, he is said to have been encouraging people to fight the Anti-LGBTQ law that was previously passed.
Byansi added on “As a human rights fighter and law enforcement officer,
it is really puzzling my mind why I would arrest someone because of his love affliction, I failed to arrest him and presented a report to my boss on 15th June 2023”
