Born again Christians have held a peaceful procession in Kampala streets praying against homosexuality and lesbianism as well as other vices like human sacrifices.  

The born again Christian activists, mostly youths, were led by Sarah Mukisa, Pastor of the Volunteers of Salvation Outreach. Mukisa, who marched in the middle of the parade, carried a blue and white flag.

Some in the parade carried high the Ugandan flag, while others had placards saying Uganda belongs to God. A police patrol car and a number of policemen walked alongside a band playing Christian music. The dominant message on the placards carried by those in the parade was against homosexuality and lesbianism. 

Unlike in other processions, the ones marching through the city streets were not uttering any word in relation to what they were demonstrating against. Some could be heard praying and speaking in tongues. One of those in the procession, who identified himself as Ephraim, said there is need for Uganda to intensify the campaign against homosexuality.

//Cue in: "Homosexuality lesbianism... 

Cue out:…for God and for Uganda."//

Mark Olinga was also part o the procession. He said the country's young population is in great danger of a silent campaign by those who promote homosexuality.

//Cue in: "Homosexuality is against…

Cue out:…true book."//

Joshua Mukisa told URN that similar parades have been held in the past in protest against child sacrifice and immorality in the country. He also thinks the campaign to recruit young people into homosexuality is high. 

//Cue in: "My name is….

Cue Out…for our march."//

One of those who declined to be named said the procession through the city was supposed counter a group of gay and lesbians who have been trying to stage the 2017 gay pride parade.

The homosexuals were supposed to hold the pride parade on August 16th 2017 but were stopped by the Ethics and Integrity Minister, Father Simon Lokodo, who said it was illegal.
